This is a story of 82-years-old Maria and her sick son Sashko. They live out their days in the remotest depths of the provinces. Sashko went blind because of serious illness. He’s afraid of his mother passing on first. Maria fully realizes that no one would look after her son and clings to life at any price.  Maria buys a calf. Sashko starts building out a tractor groping his way in the darkness.
