A grandmother, her daughter and granddaughter - three women, three generations, constituting a small family. Their hard, lonely and miserable lives have become closely intertwined with love and hate playing a part in their own personal circumstances. A trip to visit the grandmother living in the small, God-forsaken and almost abandoned village of Pryputni becomes a turning point. In just one day, filled with strange and almost tragic events, the women are forced to re-evaluate their lives and break out of the vicious circle of daily routine, dull habits and fusty old ideas. A new and fresh outlook beckons.
