Anton wants to make his hometown, Kryvyi Rih, a better place to live. Corrupt Soviet-minded local government pays him back for his stance with smear campaigns and litigation against him.

Anton is an ordinary guy from Kryvyi Rih. He plays computer games, listens to rap music, and earns a living working as an engineer in the field of information and communication technologies. However, after the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine, Anton also starts fighting the corrupt Soviet-minded local government to make Kryvyi Rih a better place to live. The system fights back with smear campaigns in local media and litigations against him. One of the relevant issues on the agenda for Anton is arranging the proper work of public transportation in Kryvyi Rih, the longest city of Ukraine and a city where one can hardly get anywhere after 8 p.m.
