Documentary film that prompteD individuals, artists and academics from across the world to discuss the meaning and purpose of one's name in public and private spheres. Examples abound from history, popular culture and everyday life that reveal the reasons behind name changes, resounding in Slovenia and beyond. In 2007 three artists joined the Slovenian democratic party and officially took the name of Janez Janša. Their renaming, signalled as an art work, provoked a range of foreign and domestic interpretations amongst journalists and the general public.
