The documentary is aimed at presenting how Russian propaganda works. It gives a chance to observe a comparison between archive footage including the ones with a strong anti-Polish message and contemporary materials on the attitude of Russia towards the former Soviet Republics. The narrators of the documentary are two commentators. They present the teachings of a young commentator by an older experienced one. The young man is taught how to manipulate the public, how to change the intonation to convey the right kind of message (e.g. about the conflict in Ukraine) how to stress specific words or change the word order to show the situation described in a different light. The more experienced one teaches him how to avoid inconvenient opinions by saying something completely different or quoting some other person. The documentary is composed of archival footage of TVP Polish Public Television and footage taken from Liberation by Alexander Dovzhenko, the music in the background is from Siergiej Prokofiev’s ballet.
