Summary

A peaceful idyll of a typical Czech village is stirred up by the arrival of two young men, who look for the best place to install a new mobile transmitter. When the local residents learn about a very interesting reward for the land owner where the transmitter should stand, they start to ”fight” among each other with the use of authorized and unauthorized devices. At the same time a question of what those two actually are, and whether they are able to fulfill their expectations, is creeping among the villagers?
