What are the limits of personal sacrifice? How much responsibility can one person take on? The film tells the story of a match factory worker who takes up a remarkable challenge. We observe several crucial months in her life, as she attempts to turn her dreams into reality. It’s the story of extraordinary transformation, and of a love that gives her life meaning.
