A Slovenian story about how the successful transition from socialism, as well has its dark side; many factories were ruined, workers became unemployed, and those employed are very often victims of ruthless exploitation. When I learned about what women have to sacrifice in order to keep their jobs in a factory in Štajerska, I decided to make this film. It is about the life of a seven-year-old Jana.
