At first glance Peter lives the life of a typical European teenager - he lives with his parents, has a pretty girlfriend, he got into college. However, his real life is elsewhere - as the head of a paramilitary group called Slovenskí Branci that recruits hundreds of Slovak teenagers with the silent approval of the authorities. The group’s goal is simple - to prepare for war time and create a model community based on military drill, obedience and fear. Peter dreams that one day he will be able to convince the entire society - as a great politician.
