Imeti vrt je skoraj obvezno za večino slovenskih družin. Želja avtorice je v Sloveniji nekaj precej običajnega, ampak se izkaže kot nekaj, kar je vedno težje izvedljivo: kar je bilo mogoče za njene babice, dedke in starše, je postalo luksuz.

The garden is an almost obligatory addition for most Slovenian households. The author's wish is quite "average" in Slovenia, but at the same time increasingly inaccessible, something that was possible for our grandparents and parents is slowly becoming a luxury.

The short film is a documentation of garden work and a simple life, but at the same time it is a kind of personal confession and recognition. The video was shot during last year's lockdown during the epidemic and captures the author's feelings of carefreeness and the feeling that she is not missing anything as the whole world stands still.
