Few years ago teacher Jaroslav Tříska found his grandfather's legionary diary. His grandfather spent several years in a Russian captivity during the First World War. Jaroslav takes grandpa's diary and sets out on his life journey. The route goes exactly in the footsteps of grandfather's journey, following the axis Prague – Moscow – Yekaterimburg – Novosibirsk – Chita. On his journey he reveals not only external changes that have occurred during the time. He also tries to find answers to the questions - Is Russia a democratic state? What form of democracy is it, where journalists are being shot and Putin still seems to be dangerous. A feature-length version of the film will be available.
