Jana is an intelligent young woman, with a sweet and gentle face. Unfortunately, she is immobile. Like everyone her age, she longs to build a life of her own, find friendship and experience love. Luckily, Jana has a very special family that supports her.
Besides her blind sister, there is a devoted grandmother, and above all, her spirited mother, Martina. She has brought up her two disabled daughters as if they had no handicap at all. One day Jana decides to change her life. She wants to move out of her mother’s place, and even more urgently, wants to experience the pleasure of physical love. Will she find someone who will not be scared to be intimate with her? Director Dagmar Smržová uses an unsentimental approach to provide an insight into the family’s everyday life while allowing each woman to inhabit her own space with respect and self-determination.
