Called Marriage Stories, the series of documentary films covers twenty-five years of Czech society by watching the lives of several married couples. The methodis what gives the films their causality as the story develops over a long period of time. The story of Marcela was especially moving as we witness the death of her daughter at the end. The series was broadcast on television and people added to the story by offering help to the desperate woman, sending her gifts and money. The director stayed in touchwith Marcela and the rich material, brimming over with emotions, was made into a feature-length film.
