    • Synopsis
    • The film is mainly based on the confession of director‘s five sisters (6-24 years old), mother and grandmother - seven women of all generations, which are looking for a way to the single man - father, husband and sons-in-law.
      Many of sisters have recently begun to think about men and relationships more seriously – with a view towards starting their own families in the future… but considering their own recent experience from our own family, they have begun questioning their own relationships. Will they be able find the “right” man? Is there even such a thing as a perfect man? All that our parents taught us has come crashing down, but the ideals linger. “We are responsible,” sisters say. “That turns men away.” It is very difficult to leave behind old habits. The role of men is changing – that probably cannot be denied. At the same time, a “male” approach may be able to nurture a family’s continuity. What happens when this continuity is broken?
