This docu-drama re-enacts the events that began with a 68-year-old widow who ran her own store, and her attraction to a bachelor neighbor - she really wanted to marry him. Local gypsies read her palm and told her that if she paid them enough, they could guarantee that she would get her wishes, and even menstruate again (many women might feel that the last guarantee might be well worth holding back every forint). When neither the marriage nor the menstruation happen within the two months that the gypsies promised, the old woman takes the lot to court and sues to get her money back. It takes two years for her suit to come to trial, and while she is waiting, she meets a widower who is interested in marriage - maybe the gypsies meant two years and not two months? This thought gives her pause as she reconsiders the validity of her suit - and convinces most viewers that the elderly need an advocacy group.
