Documentary short film about Mara and Kaja who live in the valley of the Sava River. They are two sisters aged 80, who live alone, have no children. They do not have any electricity, telephone, television, radio or cell phones. Nothing they do not need, they say. They do not know who the president, or prime minister, or cares. They are asylum simple beauty of life, in this asylum of today’s world that would make everyone else that we can. We do not have everything we want, but if you look around you will see that we have everything we need. Peace and tranquility, how to achieve it? Simplicity. To show how the wealth and excess led us to a position of dependence and restlessness, depression and anxiety states. We forgot the little things in life, spiritual feelings, love, time spent in the family. The desire for more, better, stronger overran us all. What today means a normal man, the term is lost, we only have large and small people. The film shows the possibility of a simple life without technology, some would say it is poverty. Is that right?
