The hero of this dark comedy is Herr M., a sly, ruthless banker who deals bad loans to his clients. When he loses all his property due to an accident and the following treatment, he suddenly finds himself on the street, homeless. But even now, he continues to pursue his principles of free-market competition and founds an university to teach his fellow homeless people teambuidling and coaching. With this production, director Michal Hába disects our society to disclose the inhuman capitalist principles underneath.
