    • Synopsis
    • Her name is Dorota. It means God’s gift. But her search for a better life in a town far from home is closer to being a gift from the devil.
      In her raw and at the same time tender debut, the director combines her skills in both documentary film and animation. The film’s plot reflects the authenticity of real surroundings in which non-actors portray themselves.
      “Dorota comes from a small Slovak village and does not have much to choose from. She decides to work as a seamstress in a town on the Czech-German border, where her dreams slowly turn to ash. The story of her life in Aš is a mundane and everyday one. My priority was to most truthfully capture the motives of the girls in Aš towards making these harsh, life changing decisions, which on the surface can come across as immoral.” Iveta Grófová, director
