Mr. Sedlacek was writing one-sentence entries in his chronicle from 1981 to 2005. The chronicle includes everyday stories of his and his family's life (“Today our Gypsy neighbour Gina broke my hand. I was taken to hospital in Mlada Boleslav”), the life of the village and its surroundings (“A man called Bartos, 32 years old, killed his wife, 30, today in Prisovice and threw her body into the pond”) as well as international events (“L.I. Brezhnev died today”). The real chronicle has more than two thousand daily notes. The authors picked two hundred and used about eighty of them for the screenplay. These eighty notes provide a concentrated overview of Mr. Sedlacek's life and of our society.
