On the backdrop of extensive protests, three protagonists are reflecting on the ideal form of the state, its current problems, the mistakes of the government of Petr Nečas as well as the motivations, pitfalls and hopes of their personal engagement. Each protagonist represents a powerful approach to the problem. Karel Janeček, billionaire and stock speculator, represents an anti-corruption stream; Jan Májíček, representative of the STOP GOVERNMENT platform, is part of the anti-reform stream; last but not least, Ludvík Adámek is one of the founders of the Holešov Challenge, a rather confused jumble of diverse approaches. The three protagonists meet and pass each other at the individual events, stepping in front of the camera with their visions, dreams and plans, revealing a look behind the scenes of their motivations, (refraining from) leading a trialogue among each other and looking for an answer why things cannot be agreed on, what can be done to live a better life and who is to blame.
