Peter lives a seemingly happy life. He drives a new white SUV, has a pretty girlfriend and recently enrolled at university. However, his real life is elsewhere, as the head of a paramilitary called “Slovenskí branci” that recruits hundreds of Slovak teenagers with the silent approval of the authorities. The group’s goal is simple, to create a model totalitarian community based on military drill, obedience and fear. Peter dreams that one day he will convince the entire society, as a big shot politician.
