In 2011, a new law was adopted in Ukraine, ‘On Access to Public Information’. It allows information to be requested from state authorities which had previously been inaccessible, or even closed to any ordinary person. This law was approved at a time when the authorities are on the offensive against the people’s democratic freedoms, the level of corruption is high and many laws are neglected altogether. Five people and their associates decided to challenge the system. They bumped into a certain problem or a serious question, as the state or some officials were not performing their duty. The lack of transparency, indifference, private interest, and a lack of responsibility by the country’s leaders – that is what the characters in these documentary films have stood up to. They live in different parts of Ukraine, they do not know each other. They are united by one thing only – a desire to solve the most important issues by taking advantage of the possibility to apply for public information.
