Historical drama about a love between two teenage girls from the opposite sides of the social ladder. Just before World War 1, the fifteen-year-old poverty-stricken Anka from a small Slovak town arrives in Prague to be a maid in a wealthy family.
She meets Resi, the daughter of a noble family, who was born and raised to be an adornment and a trophy. Anka and Resi, two girls born in the same year, but at opposite ends of the social ladder, find a soulmate in each other. They become best friends, lovers and the only light in a male-dominated world.
“Part British television drama, part illicit lesbian romance, this film undercuts fears of stodgy, conservative product to deliver instead a story full of fearless performances.
