110 min.

Against the backdrop of the dramatic events surrounding the first presidential election, the filmmakers managed to capture the image of the individual candidates in a way that was not possible to get to know through the news media. The film presents a number of moving and humorous moments from behind the scenes of the election and brings the audience closer to the private faces of the candidates and those close to them. The film crew has been filming with most of the presidential candidates and capturing dramatic moments during the signature gathering process, behind-the-scenes of the nine candidates’ campaigns in the first round, and the presidential run-off finale. The central axis of the film is the journey of the main candidates from the beginning of their campaign to the decisive moment of the election.
