Synopsis

The feature documentary was created from hundreds of videos, which were filmed by the citizens of the Czech Republic, who were prompted by the author in media. The condition was that the footage must rise on May 11, 2012, from midnight to midnight. People had to shoot one day of life and answer a few questions (e.g. Are you proud that you are a Czech? Would you wear a Czech flag on your shirt? Could you sacrifice personal advantage to fight for a higher purpose?). The collage of the footage is joined by the theme of national identity and the daytime. Footage from the play A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams staged at Palmovka Theatre in Prague was used in the film.
