Every six years, the Sokol movement—a social organisation founded 150 years ago—organises a mass gymnastic performance in a football stadium. People from all over the world travel to Prague for this show. The film focusses on two characters as they prepare for the big event. Radek is an awkward young man whose family has been part of the Sokol movement for many generations. He is a gymnast who trains for the most difficult part of the performance. The second protagonist is the 75-year-old trainer, Mirek. Sokol is his life, and he wants to make everything perfectly. The big day is rapidly approaching.
