Eva Nová

Eva Nová was one of the well-known actors of communist cinema. In rehab, she was repeatedly told that her life has a purpose, but she just has to put everything in order. She is afraid that she won’t be able to cope but she is determined to fight. She returns to her small apartment with an old poster recalling her days of glory. She quickly tidies up and departs. Eva visits her son who lives in a small town where she put him as a child to be brought up by her parents, as her ex-husband, a film director, refused to adopt him. Not much of a surprise, her son Ďoďo and her sick elder sister Maňka reject her when she gets there.
