This documentary film combines reenactments featuring characters from the time of St. Cyril and Methodius in real environments with documentary-style commentary. It links the message of the Middle Ages to the present in a way that is both modern and immediate. The documentary presents the lives of St. Cyril and Methodius, the dissemination and legacy of the Cyrillo-Methodian tradition and its value for the present. Basic film structure: the life and times of St. Cyril and Methodius (acted scenes in the modern world), expert and lay testimony. The film uses a video narrative style, entertainingly combining acted scenes in the documentary space. Rather than lecturing on the nature of good and evil, it offers human stories and examples of these outstanding figures who had an impact on the world
