A Slovenian story about dark sides of the otherwise successful transition from socialism: many factories went out of business, workers became redundant, and those employed are very often victims of ruthless exploitation. When I learned about what some women have to sacrifice in order to keep their jobs in a factory in the Štajerska region, I decided to make a film about that. The film tells a story about the life of a seven-year-old girl, Jana. While her father and mother are working, Jana has chickenpox and cannot go to school. Being frolicsome just like all children, she goes out and rambles around towards rising dangers that are threatening her.
