ON YOUR MARKS!
Prague, July 2018. Fifteen thousand women and men of all generations gather together in one place to give a mass gymnastic performance. They all belong to Sokol, an apolitical movement established in the 19th century to foster self-development within a democratic community. We follow the preparations of this huge endeavor with all their failures and victories. As the date of the show approaches, the participants feel more and more pressure, which leads to many intense situations. The struggle of the Sokol members becomes an absurd metaphor of our society.
