Oh, revolution! How did we love you! Yet you abandoned us, we children of Karl Marx and Coca-Cola. Turned your attention to a new generation. Now what, revolution? In the year of anniversaries – 50 years after ´68, the 100th anniversary of the November Revolution, the 200th birthday of Karl Marx – four women set out in search of a new love. Between the May events of Paris and the Prague Spring, they discover that the revolution knows no seasons and doesn’t stick to a script. It is not dying of lead poisoning, childhood diseases or of senile old age, but due to the melancholy of its followers. The only thing that helps against PRD (post-revolutionary depression) is the performance of radical democracy: a real assembly.
