About the film

It's better not fall in love...

Her beauty is breathtaking, and the way she dances and moves will haunt your dreams. In a tiny forgotten bar, the evenings belong to her and her only. The bartender is desperately in love with her, the patrons are mesmerized. That is until a surprise guest turns up – a young man who uncovered the secret of her powers.

The realization was supported by Slovak Audiovisual Fund, Literary Fund, Bratislava Self-Governing Region and Tatra Banka Foundation.
