1 Work in Bez vědomí | The Sleepers (TV)
Based on the Czech HBO series Bez Vědomí / The Sleepers, released in 2019. This story continues where series 1 left off. So SPOILERS for series 1 in the summary and story.
A year after the Velvet Revolution, Viktor Skála is still working for the Ministry of the Interior while the KGB secretly pull his strings. His wife, Marie, knows his secret, and decided to stay with him despite it, but every day she wonders if she made the right choice.
Now, as the Eastern Bloc dissolves and the Soviet Union looks set to be complete overhauled under Gorbachev's policies, a KGB defector has come to Czechoslovakia with a list of embedded agents in the country. Skála's name is probably on that list.
Gerald Lloyd wants it to prove he was right to suspect Skála of treason. Suzanne Clayton wants it to make sure Skála isn't mentioned so her support of him doesn't prove to be an embarrassment. The newly formed Czech Federal Intelligence Service want it to see who the moles are amongst their government. And the KGB want it destroyed before anyone sees it.
So when the defector is killed in the woods outside Prague by an unknown assailant, the race is on to find the list first.
