Simona travels for the first time away from her small village in the south of the country to the industrial city in the north of Czech Republic to try out her luck in a Miss High School beauty competition. Here she is confronted with a bizarre self-realization, a huge amount of competitions and a superficial attitude that she is not use to. By the end of the competition she tries to convince herself that she is different from the other girls but still something from this experience makes her continue to explore this world of Czech beauty competitions.
