The movie portrays stories of three women – Soňa, Klára, Dáša, each in a different life situation, each in a different state of mind, but all appear in the same Christmas time. Each of them avoids the traditional Christmas mood by her own way and is immersed into her own world in which she must struggle with her own demon. The main characters are missing something that the Christmas could bring hand in hand with abundance – love. They are nagged with self-deceit and indecisiveness. This throws them into new situations in which they would never wished to be, but they can outline the way how to spend the Christmas holidays.
This full length independent debut movie reflects Slovakia and especially it’s “protagonists” in real, undistorted picture. The digital movie camera was used for filming and ensured intended concept of the picture and not to idealize, but describe living as real as possible.
