A film portrait of a woman embodying “inhuman“ will: “I was very brave, I would fall down a tree or a branch would break under my weight and I would fall down along with it...“ says the protagonist of the film whose authors, by means of memories, thoughts and unexpected situations, have filmed a contemplation about the life of an aging woman who did not give in to political, social or family pressure and kept her inner freedom. Filth, disorder, living very close to animals and moments considered shocking in the point of view of common social norms; in the life of the film protagonist, however, they only seem natural and accentuate the everydayness, in this sense even innocence with which Mrs Marta lived her life on the verge of the “human“ and the “inhuman“. In this sense, among other things, the film can become an inspiration for all those living their clean and orderly lives without the “inhuman“ longings and deeds.
