In the Czechoslovakia of the late 1970s, hundreds of enthusiasts - amateurs attempted to find creative expression although any permissible self-realization or public presentation was under the ideological control of the communist party. The film follows a number of film amateurs who realized their original and crazy ideas in spite of the ill-will of the state, developing their unconventional film language, which, nevertheless, was mostly misunderstood by the public.
Recidivism is a serious problem. Things that people in the outside world consider normal and ordinary pose great problems for ex-convicts. No place to stay, disowned by their families, jobless and with a criminal record. They have no clothes to wear and no food to eat. The film is a social study of the world of prisoners. It follows the life of two recidivists while they are in prison and later, as they make their first steps outside the gates of the most closely watched Slovak jail accompanied by a journalist.
