What its like to live in a village in modern times. The focus of this story is on 12-year-old Vojta and his father Danek, who are both into beekeeping and on Vojta`s 16-year-old cousin Anetka, who is preparing for her first participation in “hody” celebration, and of their grandmother Bohuška. Even though a part of the documentary features the traditional feast called “hody”, the aim is not to describe the event itself, but to understand how the characters feel about being a part of it and how it influences them. What its like living in a village in South Moravia, the Czech Republic?
