The film portrays Mihály Zoltán Orosz; the hyper energetic and ultra nationalist mayor of Érpatak, a village of 1,750 inhabitants in eastern Hungary. Mayor Orosz is possessed by delusions of order, discipline and control. He divides the villagers into “builders” and “destroyers”; supporters and opponents of his Érpatak Model. The mayor’s ultimate goal is the creation of a “sacred and organic dictatorship” where the supreme values are order, discipline and fighting spirit in order to unite the community on a local level and the nation on a country level.
