1. Plot

The film is about the Slovak presidential election. It is narrated by Blondacik, who is, along with his Czech partner Jazva, tasked to watch a rich businessman and lobbyist Adam Lambert. Lambert owns an advertising agency and is asked by an influential bishop Josef to manage presidential campaign of an unknown candidate Peter Poton who can take some votes from opposition candidates. He reluctantly agrees but when he finds out that his rival Ivan Muller is a campaign manager of minister Černohorsky who is the front runner in the election, he makes a bet with Muller that Poton will win in the first round. If he wins he will get Mullers business property but if he loses the bet Muller will get his property. The campaign doesnt start well and Poton fares weakly in the polls. This changes when Lamberts people find out that Poton is related to Ľudovit Stur and Lambert uses it in the campaign. Poton gets a boost in polls but still isnt popular enough to win in the first round. Lambert decides to organise a false flag atentate on Poton to increase his popularity enough. A day before voting the atentate occurs but Poton is, in a shocking twist, shot by real bullets. He is taken to the hospital where he dies but not before the result of the election is announced; he wins in a landslide victory. Lambert wins the bet and gains Mullers property. Blondacik and Jazva give the compromising materials to Lamberts estranged wife who was secretly pulling all the strings. Blondacik states that she will destroy Lambert one day, if he doesnt destroy himself first. Blodacik later establishes new political party, the Party of Potons Successors, and becomes a major political force.
