VERA who has been living in Slovenia for seven years is informed of her father's death, so she and her son JAN go to their hometown in Zagorje, Croatia. Her mother MARIJA sees her grandson Jan for the first time. Deeply religious Marija gives Vera an ultimatum that she must baptize her child before the father's funeral, but Vera doesn’t agree. After a fun evening with her relatives, Vera wakes up with a massive headache. She quickly realises that her child has already been taken to the church without her knowledge, where everything is ready for his baptism. Vera rushes to the church before the end of the ceremony, where she sees her mother as a woman who is soon going to die.
