    • Synopsis
    • Dedicated home care nurse Vlasta lives for her husband Láďa, her daughter and her patients. This abstemious woman who radiates joy begins each day with a drop of plum brandy, and not even the whims of her clients can wipe that sweet smile off her face. Her Láďa might be a Moravian free spirit who’s happy with a simple answer to every question, but the two of them are united by an inseverable bond. One ordinary day ends differently from all the others, however, and not only Vlasta but everyone around her are going to have to get used to the fact that she’s the one who’s going to need looking after. Everyone knows about the finality of human existence but the realisation of life’s actual limits comes to each of us individually and often unexpectedly. Slávek Horák, whose mature debut portrays deadly serious issues with gentle humour, relied on his own experience and his ability to transform it into a universally eloquent story, aided among others by respected script editor Jan Gogola and fine performances from the cast, in particular, Alena Mihulová (Vlasta) and Bolek Polívka (Láďa).
