Using tips provided by Sophie, his anonymous source, journalist Petr Vlcek writes a story exposing bribery within Central Energy, a state-run company. The accusations point directly at Daniel Vlcek, Petr’s brother and CE’s CEO. Soon Daniel’s dead, and Petr wants to know why.
Six months after his brother’s suicide, Petr refuses to cover anything to do with Central Energy for his paper. But he’s begun his own personal investigation, which leads him to a meeting with the new head of CE. The meeting turns bloody, convincing Petr there’s a conspiracy at work.
Police investigate Petr’s involvement with Toman’s death, while Petr and Stella push deeper into Central Energy’s ties with foreign companies. Marie makes another big break that Max considers suspect. Petr’s contacted by a man with information about a secret organization.
Petr tracks down a new lead who’s in fear for his life, while Michal tracks down his father’s past, straight to his old university. Toman’s wife is in fear for her children’s safety when a dangerous man demands she hand something over. When Eva learns of the threat, Petr’s warnings seem justified...
Spevacek gives Eva money to bail Petr out of jail. Stella learns about the Central Energy conspiracy via a similar scam pulled decades ago. Eva receives a video from Michal’s kidnappers, and Petr has to take a break from proving his innocence to help save him.
