    • Synopsis
    • THE TRUTH IS SIMPLE. LIES ARE COMPLEX. A documentary tragedy that explores the shocking behind-the-scenes events of the longest unresolved case in the history of the Czechoslovak judiciary that began in 1976, when the body of 19-year old medical student, Ludmila Cervanova, was found in a river in the middle of a small village in Western Slovakia. Judicial manipulation, secret service games, physical and mental torture, blackmailing of witnesses, massive propaganda and hidden evidence are all uncovered in this haunting documentary. The truth is simple. Lies are complex.
