A young woman wakes up to find flowers on her bedside table, and a birthday card from her little son Honzík. She dresses and prepares a snack for her son. Then she goes to the gym, where she and her colleagues are preparing a dance number, led by their choreographer. But the man is not pleased with her performance. The first small wrinkles are showing on the face of the tired woman and she finds the dance repetition arduous. In private, the choreographer repeats his offer for her to start teaching at a preparatory school. Her fellow dancers congratulate her and propose a toast with a glass of wine. The dancer remains alone in the gym and tears fill her eyes. But then the cleaning lady brings in her son, whose school has finished earlier today. The woman is soothed and kisses her child on the cheek.
