Everyone has experienced it at least once - a country wedding or a country funeral, a baptism, a feast on the occasion of a pig-slaughtering, Shrovetide ... Relatives and friends meet, both the locals and those from further afield. The prescribed ritual takes place in a most dignified manner, but only then, it seems, does the main event begin. Food is laid out on the table, people talk, remember, complain about the times, give advice, mourn and also dance and sing.
The film portrays the mood of these festivities and their main actors - the musicians. It is poetic, but also a little ironical, kindly, humorous, but also cynical and nostalgic. These musicians accompany the country dweller from the cradle to the grave.
Will this phenomenon of folk music, which carries within it the national tradition, disappear?
The film was made with the financial support of the State fund of the Czech Republic for the support and development of Czech cinematography.
