This film essay, involving a strong personal story of one of the co-authors - also a teacher in one of the oldest film schools of the world - transverses the key topics that affect tertiary education the world over. This is even more perceivable in Central Europe whose institutions are weakened by the discontinuity of democratic culture. Appearance in the film: Noam Chomsky, Frank Furedi, Vladimíra Dvořáková, Jeffrey Beall, Stanislav Štech, Jiří Nantl, Jiří Smrčka, Jiří Štický and others. The film is set within a tragicomic personal story line of one of its authors. It is not a film about universities, of which there are many, but about the pathologies of this environment.
