The thoughts and views of 105 year-old Mica Olip brings us to the bilingual villages of southern Carinthia in the year 1976. At that time the Austrian national government executes a population census on minorities. On that basis they want to decide whether a minority is eligible for bilingual place name signs or not. The census is broadly boycotted by the Slovenian minority in Carinthia. In the small mountain village of Zell/Sele, four young men decide to carry out a special “operation”: to hijack the ballot box.
