Un film documentar despre primarul unui sat care incearca sa gaseasca perechea potrivita pentru fiecare locuitor al satului care a trecut deja de 30 de ani si este inca necasatorit. Incet dar sigur, satul slovac Zemplinske Hamre e pe cale de disparitie. Totusi primarul, un general iesit la pensie, nu vrea sa se dea batut. In lupta cu singuratatea celor de 30 de ani, el recurge la tot felul de mijloace cum ar fi oferirea unor recompense financiare pentru fiecare nou nascut sau incurajarea oamenilor sa faca un copil prin intermediul radioul satului. Niciuna dintre metode nu da insa rezultate. Cu toate astea, primarul are un plan nou. El decide sa organize o petrecere dedicata intalnirilor aranjate intre burlacii din toate satele invecinate.

A situational documentary film about a village mayor trying to match local people in their thirties who are still single. Slowly but surely, the Slovak village Zemplinske Hamre is dying out. Its mayor, a retired general, doesn’t want to give up though. Fighting the thirty-year-olds’ loneliness, he has used various means such as offering a financial reward for each newborn child or encouraging people to make children in the local public address system. None of it has worked. However, the mayor has a new plan. He decides to organize a dating party for singles from all the neighboring villages…

The documentary has been awarded the Tagesspiegel Readers’ Prize at the 2011 Berlinale Film Festival.
