The film shows that even mentally handicapped people can get their bearings in public spaces and have a political opinion. The crew followed a phenomenon which affects all of us; elections to the Chamber of Deputies of the Czech Republic. They participated in pre-election meetings, recording surveys of unusual topics with citizens as well as politicians. External cameras captured everything; the reactions of the security personnel, the supporters as well as opponents of particular political parties. The film crew also investigated whether pre-election promises are but empty slogans, attempting to reveal to which extent the prejudice against everything that is not "completely normal" is still rooted in the Czech society 20 years after the revolution.
