Inginerii Zuzana (23) si Vladimir (21) au vrut sa-si dovedeasca ca se vor descurca. Au vrut sa-si construiasca o casa. Vladimir a vrut sa studieze fotografia la FAMU, Zuzana a vrut un copil. Amandoi au reusit, Zuzana chiar de trei ori. Dupa revolutie inca un vis li s-a îndeplinit. Vladimir a plecat sa lucreze in domeniul sau in Statele Unite pentru 6 ani. Experienta din New York i-a influentat considerabil viata si casnicia, mai mult decat si-ar fi  inchipuit  vreodata.

ENGLISH VERSION

An episode from a cycle of documentary films tracing 25 years in the lives of six married couples. Normalization-era socialism, and then early capitalism as seen through the lives of several Czech families. They married in 1980, and until 1986 their lives were documented on film using time-lapse, resulting in a cycle of six 30-minute films about the six young couples and the six years of their marriages. In 1999, the filmmakers visited them again, and resumed shooting until 2005. The result is another six hour-long films continuing the original cycle.

Construction engineers Zuzana (23) and Vladimir (21) wanted  prove themselves  that “they would succeed” . They wanted to build their own house, Vladimir wanted to study photography at F AMU, Zuzana wanted a child.
Both of them succeeded, Zuzana three times even. After the revolution  one more dream came true – Vladimir left to work in photography to the United States for six years. The experience from New York influenced his life and marriage more than he could have ever imagined.
