"I am falling, I am falling ... I have lost this fight, I am leaving with honor, I love this country, I love these people ... build their well-being. I am leaving without hatred towards ... I am happy for you, happy for you ...”

Milada Horáková was unjustly convicted and executed in the largest one of the fabricated political trials that took place in the 1950s in communist Czechoslovakia. The aim of the so-called monster trials was to deter people from any criticism of the state regime. Part of a large trial, also known as “the trial of a malicious conspiracy against the republic with a group of Dr. Milada Horáková ”, there were dozens of smaller lawsuits across the country. Requests for pardon were in vain. The then communist president Klement Gottwald, despite the insistence of world personalities such as Einstein, Churchill, Cardinal Griffin, Russel and many others, confirmed the death penalty for Milada Horáková on June 24. In total, they decided on 10 death sentences, almost 50 life sentences and other prison sentences totaling more than 7,800 years. Thanks to her steadfastness and courage, Horáková became a symbol of resistance to totalitarian power.

The creators dedicate this performance with deep respect to Mrs. Jana Kánska, daughter of Milada Horáková, who only got the letter, written for then sixteen-year-old daughter, after unbelievable forty years.
