1948: in a Bohemian village church, Danny Smiricky is witness to an inexplicable event which the Catholic townspeople insist is a miracle and the newly ascendant Communist Party denounces as a fraud. In its aftermath a priest is arrested, and dies under interrogation.
Twenty years later, in the midst of the Prague Spring, the case of the miracle is reopened, and Danny is reluctantly drawn into an increasingly Byzantine investigation. As he comes closer to the convoluted and inevitable answer, the unravelling mystery becomes for him a sorrowful metaphor for socialism's own miracle the Prague Spring itself.
