Historical drama from Czechoslovakia after World War II

Film TOMAN is a historical drama about Mr. Zdenek Toman, the real-life contradictory person who led the Department of Foreign Intelligence and who significantly influenced political developments in Czechoslovakia in ys. 1945-48, which substantially contributed to the fact that in the year 1948 the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (CPC) seized power by a coup.

 Dr. Zdeněk Toman was born in 1909 in Sobrance, Slovakia as Zoltán Goldberger. For three years following WWII, he was the eminence grise - or perhaps eminence rouge in his case - pulling the political strings from the background. He changed his name several times during his life, probably to distance himself from his Jewish origin,  which he perhaps saw as a burden for his career. A career that was very short but steep …

Eminence Rouge, the Red Eminence, is a nickname we are using for the purpose of our story, it was not used to refer to him during his life. During his life, the nickname could have been used for many of his colleagues from the Communist party's top level.

Originally an ordinary repatriation clerk with the exile Czechoslovak Government in London, he quickly rose to the head of Foreign Intelligence Service at the Ministry of Interior.
