Based on Miloslav Švandrlík's satiric novel, the plot takes place during 'deep Communism' in the midst of a special army unit intended for both physically and socially 'unsuitable' persons serving their time in the military. The comedy's biting subtext, treating a topic similar to Vít Olmer's Tank Battalion, is evident above all in the use of documentary footage.
