The story of one day in the life of Julie, professional translator, who has just moved into a new house with her successful husband Richard and is supposed to live the perfect life of a happy family, sets you into an upside down tour through the desires of a mother, wife and succesful, though, not necessarily satisfied woman. Buckling beneath the weight of a routine and a rather unsatisfying marriage, Julie slips into a gentle mid-life crisis catalyzed by her discovery of the loss of life of her favorite vocalist, blues legend Nina Simone. In low-key desperation and on the spur of the moment, she decides to purchase a piano and embarks on a colorful journey through the streets of Prague for fulfilling her inner dreams. But, first she has to resolve her past and present if she is to start the new life she desires.

The one day life story written and directed by Alice Nellis and produced by Oscar winning director Jan Svěrák presents in a gentle way the various shapes of love and life desires.
