This documentary presents lives of two old women living isolated in hills of Eastern Bosnia. The film highlights the intangible cultural heritage through representation of spells and rituals against inclement weather, hail and storm. The simple and pure life is combined with hard work. The topic of the film is everyday slice-of-life in rural areas, presenting stress-free environment and closeness of the two women both to each other and to Nature. The poetic tone of the feature is based on references of genre-art and realism art, creating the documents that showcase the bitter poetry of everyday life.
