2011. Croatia. Directed by Željka Suková. Marija’s funeral was interrupted by a storm. Six years later her grave remains unadorned, so her granddaughter, filmmaker Suková, decides to give Marija the send-off she deserves. Suková and her two cousins (one portrayed by an actress) throw a wild dinner party, inviting Marija’s elderly neighbors. Dressed in flamboyant frills, the cousins revel in the memory of their grandmother, while the Czech synth-pop band Midi Lidi provides live entertainment. 61 min.
