The first,Standard, began life as the author's graduation film at FAMU and describes the painful relationships between three women bound by close family ties – the seventy-five-year-old mother Irena, her widowed fifty-year-old daughter Masha and her twenty-seven-year-old granddaughter Patricia.The protagonist of the second half, No Regrets, is seventy-one-year-old Danuše Pánková, who experienced not only happiness and success in her life, but whose relationship to life and the people around her is in sharp contrast to the suffocating relationships in the preceding family.

Ultimately this complex portrait is a meeting of the minds - where the past meets the present, where generations collide, and where the boundaries of family life are pushed, pulled, stretched, torn and surprisingly at times, also healed.
