A short documentary presenting the stories of witnesses not only from Mladá Boleslav, the city where the 18th Guards Motorised Rifle Division was based. How was life in a city where Russian was commonly heard in the streets and in shops in 1968 onwards? What was the connection to the secret military area of Ralsko? And what did the coexistence of Czechs and several thousand occupiers look like smack dab in Boleslav? Was it a peaceful coexistence, hatred or sometimes even a bargain? These are the questions that the documentarians of Post Bellum sought answers to.
