Somewhere in Slovakia, far away from everything, there is a small village. People here wander aimlessly through the empty streets, casting bored glances at their equally bored neighbours. Only the woman who airs radio announcements at the local broadcasting centre really has her hands full. Someone needs a manager for a neglected cemetery here, someone else brings in an announcement there…

An impressive study of a slowly dying village, where the old times have passed and the new have yet to arrive.
