Quiet Happiness

  • Slovakia
Audio Tracks 

A psychological study of a nurse who chooses solitude as an escape from the duplicity and emotional barrenness of the men around her. Sonia is disgusted at the insensitivity and indifference of the various men in her life, and drifts through it in a daze as she tries to make sense of a world alien to her own feelings.
