The film presents the thousand-year development of the Prague Castle - from the bastion below the third courtyard to the new orangery by architect Eva Jiřičná. This extraordinarily impressive insight into architecture, sculptures or works of old art evokes the genius loci and shows the life and thoughts of rulers and those who constructed the castle. The film is divided into chapters dealing with the specific key periods of the history of the castle, its rises and falls. The film soundtrack by Jaroslav Tůma works with improvisations on the organ and period instruments.

A Fleeting Look Into the Old Royal Crypt
The film captures the atmosphere and initial reactions of researchers in examining the Old Royal Crypt in St Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle in 2005 with a probe that uses a laser to precisely measure the space and, using a small video camera, shows what is in the space - all this through an opening only 3,8 cm in diameter that was drillled in the floor.
Story of the Story
A documentary film mapping the difficult preparation and first days of the permanent exhibition of the history of Prague Castle,which is held in the Old Royal Pallace at Prague Castle.
A documentary myth. Five stories about a journey from the Underworld. Since the early 1990s the director has been accompanying and filming five children, now adults, who were rejected by their parents and left in the maternity hospitals right after they were born. The state has taken care of them: from the material point of view they lacked almost nothing - only they lived in another world. Particularly during the Communist era, all children that were different were carefully kept out of sight, hidden in a kind of underworld, far from the rest of the society and its joys and sorrows. The protagonists of the film, however, surmounted the obstacles and entered our world: they are living independently, working, having healthy children, divorcing, and getting married again; some have even met their parents.
