Mr Sedláček was writing one-sentence entries in his chronicle from 1981 to 2005. The chronicle assembles everyday stories of his and his family's life, the life of the village and its surroundings as well as international events side by side.
Narrating eigthy entries from a total of more than two thousand daily notes the film manages to provide a astonishingly concentrated overview of Mr. Sedláček's life and of our society.

The humdrum daily routine of a tram driver: like every morning, men get on the vehicle to go to work, all similar, quiet, grey. And yet, on that day, prompted by the jolts and the road vibrations, to the rhythm of the tickets inserted in the ticket-stamping machine, the driver gets turned on and the tram goes erotic.
