Summary

An adapted version of a school film from 2011. The film is set in Slovakia, where the traditional family model is still relatively strong. It is about a large Catholic family, The Oľhas, whose father Matúš left. Mother Jana, five daughters and one son were left alone in the course of a day. Son Adam decided to document this change and make a film from the position of the "last man" in the family. The film illustrates that one man can’t handle seven women and that seven women can fight for one man. In the film, family photos and films created in 1976 - 2005 by Matúš Oľha were used.
