The film is about volunteers of the charitable organization “Old is happiness” (Starost - v radost)


At first sight, charity is something easy to do: it’s all about collecting things, spending some spare time and donating money occasionally. But it turns out that it’s more complicated than we think. Especially when you are 17 and you’re not ready to face poverty and senility. The things become even more complex when you’re realizing that someone is constantly waiting for your help.
