The film is a road-movie-like investigation opposing an original folk story, concerning local events during the Second World War, to an official communist propaganda myth-like presentation of the same episodes of history, that remained in state ordered books, films and memorial museums. Through the confrontation of facts, the film reveals the fact a legendary local guerrilla-girl was most likely a witch, whose power was probably used by soviet authorities to put a spell on the “Reichsfürer”, Adolph Hitler, during his secret visit to the Seliger region, where his grand-mother had her roots.
