Miro Žbirka, whom everyone simply calls Mecca. Everyone knows his name and hits, Žbirka himself and few people know his real life. At the same time, it resembles a great song, it has a captivating story, tempo, emotions and surprises. The energetic film portrait of Mecca presents the popular singer up close, completely open and honest and, in unexpected contexts, also with humor. The film was made by Šimon Šafránek, who won the Czech Lion for his previous documentary King Skate.
