Except for one family with a small child, only old people live in this half-empty village. A mobile shop comes there once a week, only immobility of time is left, covering however correlation of complex inner and outer actions. The discovery of slowness and inheritance of Eastern European documentary lyrics is, within the mood of hopelessness and departing, counting on poetics of hints with more emotional charge. The pictures of a specific village represent here the starting scenery as well as a symbol, and the director connects them as they are and creates inner connections of dispute between humility and resignation. The picture is also a witness of pending invoice of one line of a documentary film, the style seems to fight the time, the changes occur only on the surface, unclear, and things which are changing are not the same as things which are unchangeable.
