In rehab, she was repeatedly told that her life has a purpose, but she just has to put everything in order. She is afraid that she won’t be able to cope but she is determined to fight. She returns to her small apartment with an old poster recalling her days of glory. She quickly tidies up and then immediately travels to visit her family. Eva visits her son who lives in a small town where she put him as a child to be brought up by her parents, as her ex-husband, a film director, refused to adopt him. Her son Ďoďo and her sick elder sister Maňka reject her. Ďoďo sternly shows Eva out of the house. Maňka is his mother, he has got his family, his wife Helena , his children, and Eva is no part of it.
