A documentary about the current life and times of Czech new wave legend Věra Chytilová. Although the 74-year-old director is respected as a seminal creator in the history of Czech film, she is yet to attain true happiness. At first glance her life seems perfect. She has been successful at everything she has touched: she made films and had the strength to stand up to Communist malevolence. Many of her films are considered gems of world cinema and have taken corresponding awards. At one time she seemed content in her personal life as well: she married a fine man, a renowned director of photography, and they had two kids, a lovely house and garden, cats, a dog everything to make a home. In spite of this, when she looks back, it´s difficult for her to find meaning in her long and productive life...
