In this ethnic, sociological documentary, Janko Messner, an important writer in Austrian and Slovenian literature, entertains the viewer with his running commentary on the history of the Slovenians (inside and outside of Austria) since World War I, and the problems of maintaining a Slovenian identity and culture inside Austria, where they are a minority. Alternately angry or humorous, depending on the topic addressed, Messner provides ample information and his own point of view with his characteristic acuity and wit.
