In the introduction to this film we meet a young law student who builds a reputation of an ideal conservative politician, with strong non-verbal communication skills and carefully thought-out conservative arguments, through secondary and primary school.

We also get to know part of his environment and his motivations for engaging in politics. The film follows him making his way in the world of adults, the world he dreamed about when he was a child. At a 2016 pre-election rally, the 20-year-old young man feels a glimpse of the glamour of politics and excitement as the day of decision approaches. As one of the guests at the headquarters of the ruling party, he has the opportunity to share the rush of the election night with his role models and sense the peak of the electoral campaign. After hours of waiting, walking through the crowd, experiencing the glamour and a big party, the young man once again turns into a student chasing his dreams.
