After stumbling across financial irregularities at the ministry where she works, Kristína notifies the police - and her life will never be the same. Her actions are certainly commendable, yet all she feels is loneliness, remorse and a sense of misgiving as she asks herself whether it's really necessary to pay such a high price for justice. Out of Pure Conscience is the story of a generation who could, if they chose, bring change to Slovakia, a country still shaking off the taint of totalitarianism thirty years after the Velvet Revolution. The film, however, is also a universal reflection on individuals who decide to step away from the crowd and bear the consequences of what they have done, no matter how painful.
