So far, Željko Špoljar has published collections of stories "Teškoće pri gutanju", "Moj brat Felix Krull", and "Welcome to Croatia" in co-authorship with Kristijan Vujičić, for which he received the Kiklop award in 2006. Thanks to the novel "Gumeni galeb", Špoljar won the Matica Hrvatska Osijek contest for the best unpublished prose text in 2007. In 2014, he published the novel "Štakorbar" (Drago Gervais Literary Award), while in 2020 he published his last novel - "Petokoronaš". On the other hand, Pavle Svirac published the novels: "Literary Groupie", "Strovaljivanje", and "Kako biti hipster". Svirac has also been a columnist (“Nacional”) for several years, famous for the series of literary records "Šta se čita na jarunskoj nudističkoj plaži" and "Interlibdžija diary", while his Književna Groupie Facebook page currently has over 13,000 followers.

The film follows Željko's relationship with Svirac as a personality, his relationship with his ex-wife Maja Hrgović (who until recently worked as a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, and since then as a taxi driver in Split) as well as his relationships with his daughter Nora, family, society, culture, publishing houses and the editor-in-chief of “Nacional”. Through all this, Špoljar/Svirac not only talks about domestic social dilemmas, problems, and conflicts, but also about himself as one of the most interesting phenomena of the contemporary Croatian cultural scene, in the context of local history, not so rare, "misfit" protagonists.
