Why is there vaccination compulsory in Czech republic as in the most Western European countries parents have a choice? Do not doctors vaccinate too early? Do Czech parents even have sufficient information? Documentarist Tereza Reichová and her husband Hynek Reich Štětka, look for answers to these and other questions. The birth of their daughter Žofka has brought concerns about her health to them. The couple stored themselves with a camera and filmed anything that could influence their decision to vaccinate their daughter or not. During discussions with paediatricians, the Ministry of Health, friends, Žofka’s grandmother, and each other, they discovered that forming a clear and well-founded opinion is by no means easy.
