The film about a paramilitary group which recruits hundreds of teenagers in Slovakia with the government’s silent approval.
At first glance, Peter lives the life of a typical European teenager – he lives with his parents, has a pretty girlfriend, he just got into college. However, his real life is elsewhere – as the head of the paramilitary group called ‘Slovenskí branci’ that recruits hundreds of Slovakian teenagers, with the silent approval of the authorities. The group’s goal is simple – to prepare for wartime and create a model community based on military drill, obedience and fear. Peter dreams of one day being able to convince the entire society, as a great politician. The film portrays a leader’s rise to power and touches on very topical themes of nationalism and the mechanism of power.
