This multifaceted work is a novel on the reality of post-Communist transition and post-transition, especially those segments that often fill the daily media: the functioning of the judiciary, denationalisation issues, systemic corruption, recapitalisation of banks. It is also a novel about different forms of love, the boundaries of friendship, a tale of how the boundaries between good and evil, ethical and unethical, right and wrong can be extremely thin and blurred – as well as always individually depended.
