In 2005, filmmaker Adam Oľha’s father decided to leave his wife and six children in order to start a new life. As the oldest of the siblings and the only remaining man in the family, Adam explores his father’s old photographs, compares them with the present, and tries to discover what led to such a radical decision. He traces his parents’ relationship from its beginnings, reveals problems in communication between husband and wife at a particular time, and observes how they are reflected in the lives of his sisters.
