This film has an educational character. Before the destruction of the worker's movement by facism, there were many thousend of working people taking courses in history, culture, politics, and economics without any benefit to their working life. We wanted to bring this idea back to life. But schools where such a film could be of use have not been reestablished. Life has changed so much, the pursuit of leisure time occupies people just as much as work did before.
