That same night Stach is born. Seventeen years later, Stach asks the question that no one dared to ask: what must someone do to become king of Katoren? The ministers are trapped because of the attention of the press and decide to give the young troublemaker five impossible assignments. On his way he meets the ambitious journalism student Kim.
