Four elderly women reminisce about when they were young and how relationships between men and women were different in those days. Their voices merge into one, grandmother Vera’s, who tells her story in great detail. A return to her youth, where the memories of her intimate life illustrate the status of Slovenian women in the first half of the 20th century.
