Kata Olah, Sándor Csukás, Hungary, 2018, 28'

Marika is the brightest star of the senior clubs. Over 80, she has an infant soul and a passionate existence: craving for desserts, playing with her stuffed toys and dressing up like a pretty ballerina. After 60 years of loveless life, she finally has Janos by her side: tango, waltz, swing, cha-cha-cha, pastries if she wants even twice a day. Marika’s passionate story-telling, lively gaze and spicy sentences are filled with joy and energy. But her enthusiasm and love for life hide deep and dark memories.
