The world of politics has a number of typical features: expansiveness, an effort to dictate the rules of the political game, to increase the powers of all players, to politicize significant social issues, to fill all important posts according to party affiliation, and to maintain power without any glitches, ensuring one's own political influence also for the future. These became most evident during the period of so-called "opposition contract", i.e., between the years 1998 - 2002. The film explores the negative attributes through a number of basic issues: How can power be usurped in a democracy? At the end of the 1990s, the two largest parties and their leaders came to understand that they could join forces and gradually simplify the political system to suit their needs. What steps did they take?
