Courage

Alfred and Jurek are brothers who run a cable TV company in the suburbs of a large city. Jurek has plans to expand the business they inherited from their sick father, but is opposed by his domineering older brother. When Alfred’s car breaks down, they take a local train where they witness a group of hooligans hassling a provocatively dressed young woman. When Jurek stands in her defense, Alfred is paralysed with fear. He sees his younger brother assaulted and thrown out of the speeding train. Jurek ends up in a coma, hanging on to dear life in a hospital. Alfred is stricken with shame and grief. When forced to face his parents, wife, and employees, Alfred makes himself out to be a hero that was knocked out in the scuffle and could not help his brother. Soon after, a cell phone video appears online that shows Alfred frozen with fear as his brother is mercilessly attacked. As Alfred attempts to find the person responsible for the video and to take it down, the film begins to surface.
