    • Synopsis
    • Partly paralysed by polio, Vlado is stuck in his flat and unable to take care of himself. His younger wife, Alma, helps Vlado with love and tenderness in all his daily life activities, like walking or taking a shower, never giving up hope that he will get better. But Vlado feels weak and humiliated and is losing the motivation to exercise or take medicine. Even as the love and tenderness between the couple is revealed in moments of subtle intimacy, Vlado’s self-loathing causes him to reject Alma. Haunted by visions of a half-man/half-horse, Alma considers alternative ways to solve their situation. The centaur appears in a dream and gets closer and closer to their reality, pushing events towards an extreme conclusion. Vlado decides to end up his misery, to bury the dead part of the body and wait for miracle. Alma’s love is challenged but she executes the simple ceremony with dedication. By dawn, magic will happen.
