Synopsis

Good quality public transport is a common goal for both the passengers and the employees of the City of Prague Transport Company. Yet there are drivers and conductors who deliberately leave the terminal station earlier and take malicious joy watching the people running to catch the tram. The conductor is smoking a cigarette on the open platform of the old type tram and he is scandalized when a passenger does the same. Some of the passengers are also malicious. The man with a lot of boxes pays the three crowns for the ticket with ten-heller coins on purpose. Another passenger has a lot of tickets and is looking for the right one in vain when the tickets are inspected. Some crumple their tickets and complicate the work for the conductor. The film tries to bring the wrong-doers on both sides to behave properly as that will prevent the ugly conflicts and make public transport more pleasant for everyone.
