Having been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and suffered two strokes, Ms. Oldriska lives with her dog in an apartement with a lovely view of Brno. Using a simple digital camera she records a few days of her life – an everyday struggle with body and brain, a visit by her friend and son, the reconstruction of her apartment. With no previous experience filming, she uses the camera in a very spontaneous way, sometimes fighting with the technical limits of the device, sometimes even forgetting about the shooting itself. The film deals with ageing, pain, solitude, and also love, for people and animals, in a very raw and non-aestheticized manner.
