Summary


While Katarina Witt, East-German socialist beauty and allegedly Honecker’s mistress continues her fantastic ice-skating career even after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the no-less-beautiful Czech Olga Abelová, never the mistress of President Husák (she just took care of him for five days after his operation), sets off on an agonising journey at the beginning of the 1990’s. Is it a journey through purgatory, hell or just a chain of really bad coincidences?
