How do you find talent in the 21st century? In this observational documentary, Adéla Komrzý and Tomáš Bojar map the talent exams at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.

Every year, the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague holds talent exams. In three different studios, the film follows the behind-the-scenes of the challenging task facing the teachers here: how to select from the crowd of applicants the ones who will get the opportunity to shape the nature of fine arts in the years to come? How will the teachers themselves stand up to this test? The subject of the examination thus gradually becomes the art itself. And also its place in today's confused world. The questions are many: Who do we make art for? Is it enough to do things the way we feel? Do we need to know when Tiepolo created? Can anything offend us today? Murder or suicide? Bisexuality or pansexuality? Shit or blood? What does all this tell us about the nature and meaning of art today?
