Eva Nová (Emília Vásáryová) was once a widely recognized and respected actress, but she fell from the peak of her career into a downward spiral, drinking herself into a prolonged stupor without any consideration for those who loved and depended on her. Now, at the age of sixty-two, Eva wants a new life.
She says goodbye to her support group for the third — and what she hopes is the last — time. Having gone through a period of isolation, Eva is dead set on staying sober and determined to reconcile with those whose confidence she lost during the worst years of her addiction. More than anything else, she wants to regain the love of the person she values most in life: her son Dod’o (Milan Ondrík). After years of mutual resentment and anger, she yearns for his acceptance, and even though they hardly know each other any more, she’s hell-bent on making amends. [Synopsis courtesy of TIFF]
