A poignant overview of how short life can be, this film is divided into four separate segments. In the first skit, a young child’s impressions are observed as his newborn baby sister becomes a part of the family. In the second, a young woman falls in love for the first time one summer; and in the third, a tough, older peasant woman battles against the farming cooperatives. Finally, in the last segment, everything comes full circle as a woman, who is about to become a grandmother, dies while her daughter-in-law has not yet given birth.


DVD-R is in Czech with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 91 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
