Upon Eliko’s death, his granddaughter Moe begins organising his funeral. However, in cataloguing his eulogy, she’s confronted with stories about his past relationships, and the hidden truth of his sexuality. Meanwhile, she develops romantic feelings for the local café owner Fleshka. But can their relationship thrive under the burning eyes of the conservative villagers?

This beautifully shot and quietly contemplative study shines a light on the issue of LGBQT+ rights in her native Eastern European country, with characters and a screenplay that strike a chord.
