16-year-old Tereza is a happy girl with a childish view of the world. One day she is forced to leave school and has to go to Bratislava in search of her mother. Her journey across the Slovakian countryside is punctuated by idyllic sequences and by a series of bizarre encounters. She meets a stationmaster in a station where trains no longer stop. She comes across a man whose job is to destroy as many things as possible, though he has no idea why he is paid to do so. Then Tereza meets an old woman half-buried in the ground who tells her it is an ancient method of relieving the body of pain. Eventually Tereza reaches the city. She is convinced her mother will have all the answers to her questions.
