Synopsis

The marriage of Jiří, a telephone mechanic, and Marcela, a horse breeder, was sealed by both secular and religious services. They married out of love, but the relationship was fraught with disagreement right from the beginning. Even their subsequent fates weren’t happy ones: after the death of their daughter, Marcela remained alone with her son. Viewers help her out financially, but she can’t cope with the loss.

“After the film was broadcast, viewers began sending Marcela money, writing to her, and helping in every possible way. Viewers even actually became a part of their story and actively tried to change it. It was an unbelievably fascinating dramaturgical situation.” H. Třeštíková
