    • Synopsis
    • Ida, a carer for the elderly, drives from the Slovenian coast to see Albert, an old man in a wheelchair living in a large apartment in Trieste, and to do the cooking and cleaning for him and wash him. Ida is confronted with his sarcasm and cynicism, which he uses to pick on people, including her, but she resists it with dignity up until the last moment when old Albert discovers her true identity. Ida originally comes from Bosnia but speaks perfect Slovenian. This discovery infuriates Albert, who has been talking disrespectfully about people who are not pure Slovenians every day since Ida arrived.
