An extraordinary love story of Irena and Avguštin Maučec from Turinšče, a village in the region of Prekmurje, Slovenia. In the 1990s, soon after their wedding Irena and Avguštin had a bad car accident that left Irena with a serious brain injury. Failing to wake up, she was given up on by the doctors to die a slow death. Avguštin would not agree: he took her home and has since been giving her selfless care. After years of battling the healthcare system, he decided at the age of 40 to study law. He is now about to take his bar exams, and find a job to be able to take proper care of Irena.
V filmu ne najdemo besede humanizem, izžareva pa ves čas pomoč človeku in človeštvu. Opaža se, da nekateri čutijo dilemo, da bi opustili ekstremno medicino in pustili naravi, da naredi svoje, drugi pa občudujejo Avgustinovo moč, požrtvovalnost in vztrajnost. Tako humanitarnost ni samo parola, ampak jo globoko občutimo. Film vliva upanje v človeštvo.
