Located near the South Moravian town of Vyškov, the small village of Drnovice boasts a football stadium for ten thousand fans. It is a pyramid of a long-lost football civilization that used to be ruled by famous names. The rise and fall of the local football club is typical for Czech football, politics and business of the 1990s, revealing not only beautiful goals but also mysterious sponsors, corruption or doping. This film takes us back to a time when top ministry officials had no clue about huge financial scams and when Czech footballers were in the game for the European Championship title.
