The Lynching


Four months ago, a young Roma man named Denis was murdered in the small town of Buchnov. A young documentary filmmaker and blogger named Lukáš comes to Buchnov from Prague. His childhood friend there Jiří is a suspect in the brutal murder of their mutual acquaintance – Denis. Disrupting the seemingly quiet life in the little town, Lukáš uncovers the closely guarded secrets and unexpected context of Denis's murder, which does not suit the locals in the least, as he learns that there is more than one person responsible for Denis's death. Among other things, this eight-part miniseries explores what effect the murder of an innocent man has on a small town where everybody knows each other and everyone has their secrets.
