A person who helped to create a system only to be sacrificed by it.  A time that needs a culprit even if it should make one. The main character in this story is failed environmentalist Filip who is tempted by the prospect of an easy political career in the city council. He becomes the Head of Urban Greenery and life seems idyllic. However, after the fall of a tree in the city centre and the death of a little boy, his life falls into a spiral of investigation and doubt. Filip soon learns that he cannot escape unscathed. The system has decided to sacrifice the one person who helped to create and maintain it. The plot is based on a true story when ten years ago a tree killed two boys in the Zlín region.
