Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this Yugoslavian film, when a young man shows up at her door, Jelena's life begins to disintegrate from within. The man was the other driver in an accident which injured Jelena's husband. After helping her husband at the scene of the accident, the young man seeks out Jelena (Ana Karic) to tell her about the accident and to obtain money for her husband's medical treatment. Jelena seems to take the news well, and she agrees to travel with the man to see her husband. While passing the time before her train arrives, she goes to see her father in his old-age home. There, she gives him a tongue-lashing for doing small favors around the home to earn pocket money because she believes this behavior is beneath his dignity or will reflect badly on her. When Jelena returns home, the young man comes to visit once again with the disturbing news that her husband doesn't want to see her and with the request that she leave the money with his girlfriend (whom she didn't know about previously). Somehow the wife becomes romantically involved with the young man and disillusionment follows disillusionment as the film proceeds.
