A New Shift

Nová šichta

Thomas is almost fifty, he is radical football fan of his club Baník and for the past 25 years he has worked in the Paskov mine. Demand for coal has been falling and the mine was closed. Tomas and his dismissed colleagues were offered to try to retrain in new profession, which is now in the highest demand - computer programmer. Tomas accepted the life challenge and we follow his story of this radical change in an intimate time-lapse portrait. Can he succeed in such a different profession? How does a radical Baník fan with a miners slang fit into a group of young programmers? And what about the rest of us - will we soon be forced to face a similar challenge as a result of the ongoing automation of work?
A hundred years of work development and its culture depicted on the story of one person.
