    • Synopsis
    • As if we are invisible witnesses, we follow them through their daily life, discovering the little nuances that define their personalities and the events that forge their characters: Olga, a woman in her mid-sixties, makes a living by making cheeses and selling them on the highway, together with three other women of various ages. That morning the cow, for the nth time, would not give her enough milk to make the cheeses, so she is forced to have to buy the rest in a nearby farm, only to discover the price of the milk has gone up. Once on the highway, and in order to compensate for the higher price of the milk, she convinces the other women to raise the price of the cheeses. After many hours trying to sell the cheese at the new price, and noticing that, ironically, she is the only one not selling any, Olga decides to offer the cheese secretly at the old price. But, even after all this effort she is still not able to sell.
