Mareček's film is interwoven by various absurd moments experienced by members of this organization in their effort at regulating Prague's transport situation. Entertaining moments occur primarily in the scenes of the activists's attempts at communication with the Prague administration. Prague city mayor Pavel Bém became the main star of the film capturing the development of his communication with the members of the association.

Martin Mareček pointed out his sense of schizophrenia when working within the organization and playing the role of its observer through the film camera at the same time. The current spokesman of Auto*Mat Michal Křivohlávek was also present at the screening. He would consider it a success if the association reached a stronger support of public transport on the side of the Prague administration within the horizon of three years.
