The filmmakers traveled to a dozen Czech villages to document the many types of inhabitants in all their complex simplicity, to witness their transformation, and to partake of the local atmosphere. Set against the classic time frame of a single year, the film follows the rhythm of life in the country: a band at a funeral, the quiet of a winter village, people at home, at work, horses in the snow, a pub where cards are played… There are those who find magic in village life and in new experiences, while others resign themselves, often drunkenly, to the everyday grind. Gradually, the director focuses on just a few folks whom she follows to this year’s elections. It is interesting to see which of the Czech politicians they choose in the end. But then again the harvest is about to begin…
