Recently one of the oldest women living in a small village in Moldova died in one of the houses. Young and old generation come together in order to say goodbye to the old Lady who was mother, grandmother, friend and neighbor. Tradition collides with modern spirit, people from far away return and meet people who have never left the village. On a very hot day in August during the Panikhida – the orthodox burial-ceremony – it comes to an explosion of emotions, memories, facts and absurdities.
