Do You want to be their president?

All the imperfections of a young democracy hang in the balance like a black cloud over the term of the president of the "Stuka" ("Pike") Fishing Association. And he's only human. The problems are piling up, the solutions are long overdue, and the democratic majority is keeping silent.
How to move forward in such conditions? Maybe reverse is a good direction? That's too big a burden on one man's back, even if he's the president. In the idyllic, untouched nature, next to a barbecue by the log-cabin, the president and the members of the assiciation try to identify the problems and break the deadlock with a decisive action. We should drink some wine with mineral water and be constructive about this.
Oh, democracy, who ever invented you?!
