Miroslav Brož’s quixotic struggle to improve the status of the Roma in the Czech Republic has found expression in protests for the removal of a pig farm. The lack of participants in the planned blockade leads to frustration and lost hope for fulfilling the vision of a more active civil society. The diffidence from the protest’s outcome is contrasted with the terseness of Brož’s voiceover commentary and his activities on social networks, which are subtly edited onto the screen.
