Home Care
(nr) 92 min
in Czech with English subtitles

Dedicated home care nurse Vlasta attends her whimsical patients in her Southern Moravia country region. After Vlasta learns about her own serious illness and need for help, she has to reach outside of her comfort zone. Thanks to the daughter of one of her patients who introduces her to an esoteric mentor, Vlasta starts to discover the realm of alternative healing. All this is frowned upon by her husband Lada, who doesn’t believe in all this nonsense one bit. Drama and comedy intertwine as Vlasta realizes – for the first time in her life – that she needs care too.
