At first glance, the film concerns a group of high school friends who like making graffiti. But hidden conflicts affecting the young generation eventually rise to the surface: conflicts between conformity and absolute freedom, between responsibility and living impulsively, between a school experience divorced from reality and the need to seek real experiences. The main characters are gymnasts Petr and Pavla, their teacher Tomáš, and school director Mirka. The viewer is taken from a traditional school environment to a dark, nighttime whirl where graffiti artists live as they wish. There, the tired, stereotyped city is transformed before our eyes. Unbridled freedom, ignorance of all rules, and hip hop round out the dramatic, almost thrilling story.
