In a confrontation with her mother Olga Sommerová, the maker of the documentary enters into dialogues about life. A friendly duel between two generations, two women - mother and daughter. The mother - a well-known film director, the daughter - a film director at the beginning of her career. Their dialogues are intimate, spontaneous, loving, excited, dramatic and confrontational, their subjects being the groping search for one's sense of self, the desire for love and recognition, interpersonal relationships, the social position of men and women, and professional disputes over documentary film. They are also about unfulfilled desires, ageing and fear. Two Olgas, two directors, two views on life and the world. Opening shots, their first photographs together. The (un)censored dialogue starts as follows: "I wanted you so badly. I got you by praying. No, not praying. I fought for you." -"So it was out of love, wasn't it?"
