This unusual movie shows a story that could have happened. It depicts celebration of the 70th anniversary of People’s Republic of Poland. At that time socialism flourishes, shop queues are always present and kids practise wearing gas masks. People’s Republic of Poland is visited by Anna Sundgren who is a young Swedish documentary maker that wants to show the life of her peers in the place where the Round Table failed and communism prevailed. While shooting the grey reality with a hidden camera, she notices that even though the older citizens got used to it, the members of the young generation still believe that they can change their country.
