Gmajna is a Slovenian word denoting mark, i.e. land held in common by a community, or such a community. Gmajna is also the name of a Slovenian village with an aging population struggling to cope with the radically changing post-socialist world, one dramatically different from the world of their Yugoslav youth. The poetic work of cinematic historiography features intimate accounts by seniors who use the basic metaphors of Slovenian history to ruminate not only on Slovenian land or state but above all on the personal stories they have lived out on the common land of their own histories.

V idilične podobe pokrajine vdira vztrajen, nadležen zvok avtoceste, ki razdira skupnost starega prebivalstva Gmajne. Film s posebnim posluhom za vaščane ponudi subjektivni zgodovinski pregled razvoja okolja, za katerega se zdi, da izginja.

Posneti celovečerni študijski film je težko, posneti dober celovečerni študijski film še toliko težje. A režiserju Sebastianu Koreniču Tratniku je uspelo prav to. Gmajna ponudi srce parajoč vpogled v slovensko podeželje, ki ga je modernizacija dobesedno presekala na pol, ga razčlovečila in odtujila, zaradi česar od njega ostajajo zgolj spomini in anekdote. Izjemna senzibilnost, s katero je režiser dal glas ljudem, ki jih družba nepravično potiska na obrobje in v preteklost, je več kot dovolj dober razlog, da žirija mlademu filmarju podeli vesno za posebne dosežke.
