The story encapsulates changes the Czech Republic has undergone throughout the last three decades. The film verifies how much truth some of the popular myths about the Czechs really hold: Do they have Schweik’s traits of character? Are they a nation, who proudly and calmly watches from the sidelines how great history is made? Are they rebellious atheists? Are they really not putting up much of a fight against authorities? What are the Czechs really like and what do they think of themselves? Film creators interview well-known Czech politicians, historians and analysts of social and political life. They also talk with ordinary people, who occupy themselves with extraordinary things - like Frantisek Hadrava from Šumava, a locksmith, who constructs planes.
