The construction of a Hyundai car plant in Nošovice, north Moravia, was accompanied by conflict, heated emotions and media interest. The purchase of agricultural land by the company resulted in threats being made to villagers unwilling to sell their properties. In the end, they gave in and an industrial monster with its own football pitch and giant car park went up on what had been a green meadow. Director Vít Klusák visited the village three years after the factory's opening to examine how the locals have come to terms with the situation. Some complain about how they were pressured to sell their land. For others it is a closed chapter, albeit a sensitive one. People from the surrounding area have found work at the plant, though that has not been easy either. Workers are given numbers: the lower the number, the less important they are in the company's hierarchy. They have to sing a Korean song at an induction ceremony, and complaints about working conditions lead to swift dismissal. Meanwhile, the new fields around the Nošovice plant continue to produce the famous local cabbage, though a producer is concerned about how long the regeneration of the land will take. Will Hyundai's investment bring happiness to the village?
