In their regular restaurant, the local Social Democrats’ group is preparing for its Italian Night – a “casual social gathering”, which aims to bring “comrades closer together”. The fact that right-wing extremist groups from all over the country are flocking together on the same evening to stage a “German Day” with paramilitary marches is not much concern to the small town. With impressive incisiveness, Horváth asks the extent to which the collapse of democracy is due to a left wing that ignores social realities and undermines its own position with party infghting.
