Czech Republic / 2020 / 66'
She is never down and out. Anny has three grown-up kids, divorced twice, working as a toilet attendant. At 46, she is taking to the streets as a hooker to make Christmas happier for her grandchildren. We see 16 years of the life story of one peculiar woman, whose eyes always stare towards the sky rather than to the ground. She is searching for love, defying misfortune and illness, taking all her difficulties with terse humor and a practical point of view.
