Logline: Although Dustzone is a district in the centre of modern-day Prague, there is no electricity and all devices go off the moment they enter the area. One day, the limits of Dustzone start to spread and the whole city is in danger of being swallowed up by darkness. 13-year-old Jirka and his two best friends set out on a mission to find out how it can be stopped and what is the real secret of Dustzone that dates all the way back to the 19th century. It won’t be an easy journey and the children will have to face powerful enemies, fight for their lives and prove their friendship in order to save their loved ones, the whole city – and even the world.
