Piotr Tymochowicz, the media adviser, decided to prove that he can transform every man into a politician. Hundreds people answered the casting. Only dozen started training. Survived only one. The film crew had a unique opportunity to follow up mechanisms of birth and evolution of the most despised things in Polish political class. Tymochowicz has been working on the movie for three and a half year. Made in Poland, the film carries the universal message. Demagogic and populism is not only the polish specialty.
