The story of Tomáš Baťa is straight out of the legends about people who achieved their lifelong goal in the face of unimaginable obstacles. How much is a person willing to sacrifice on the way to his lifelong dream? His love, friends, even life? Why is the desire to succeed so strong where others would have given up long ago? What internal motor or juggernaut can bring someone to the edge of human capabilities?  In Central Europe there is only a handful of men who were able to create an worldwide business empire out of nothing. Our film maps the journey of one such man.
