This animated film, based on the song by Iztok Mlakar, follows the story of a simple peasant couple from their wedding to their death. The main thread of the story is a tiny deceit throughout their whole life, the wife has prepared a cheap coffee substitute (chicory) instead of real coffee for her husband. The husband, who is a brute and misanthrope, never sees through her deception, although everyone else knows. For him, the swill tastes better than the best coffee. A simple story about how we are unable to show our loved ones that we love them until it is too late.
