In the village of Litmanová at Eastern Slovakia, there were two girls, Ivetka and Katka, who saw the Virgin Mary each month between August 1990 and August 1995. They were ten and eleven when it started. Both of them saw her, and Ivetka could also talk to her and receive her messages. Once the series of revelations ended, Katka got happily married and lived a private life. The other, Ivetka, went to a convent, where she spent nine years. After fulfilling her initial vows she decided to leave... The place – Zvir Mountain near Litmanová – became famous, having drawn millions of people already, with more coming every day... The film recounts Ivetka’s inner and outer experience of meeting the Virgin Mary and opens the question: How to live with a revelation?
