It?s the perfect crime: nothing is stolen, no one gets hurt, no property is really damaged. Wealthy people arrive home from vacations to find their belongings piled in the middle of a room; a prized collection of china soldiers clumped in the toilet; the stereo lodged in the microwave. On a note is a simple message: ?Your days of plenty are numbered,? an anti-capitalist slogan that unnerves the people whose homes are invaded. They do not feel safe anymore, the sole objective of The Edukators, two young and idealistic men who see themselves as politically radicals. Jan is fierce, Peter is laid back. Soon his girlfriend Jule gets involved, and suddenly the harmless ?crime? turns into an improvised kidnapping coupled with a ?Jules and Jim? situation. A bourgeois businessman, the kidnapped man slowly reveals himself to be a former lefty of the ?60s. But is he only lying to save himself?
