A unique behind-the-scenes look on Czech show business and the artificially assembled group 5Angels. The film won the Czech Film Critics Award for Best Documentary. This authorial document by Bohdan Bláhovec takes a close look on would-be stars who long for becoming idols. Supporters, opponents and those who have never heard of 5Angels get a unique opportunity to be with them. Not only during the moments that were made for this, but also in the backstage when the fake smiles and gestures disappear and hard drill comes.
