Can love be replaced by material property? The film is a tragicomic and intimate portrait of an ageing couple from the Slovak countryside. They have been living in debt and repairing their house in the hope that their children will come back to live with them again one day. But in every parent’s life, there comes a moment when they must face up the fear of being alone.
