Writers: Petr Jákl, Marek Dobes

A crime thriller inspired by the story of Jiří Kajínek, a man who is said to be the first hitman in the Czech Republic. His successful escape from the Mírov prison made him a legend-and also the most wanted man in Europe. The five weeks he spent on the run from the police have never been explained. The Kajínek film is a powerful tale about the country’s most notorious inmate. It is a story of double homicide and a lawyer looking for new evidence, of the criminal underworld and its seedy ties to the government, and also a story of manipulation.
