Summary

In 35 years of one couple’s shared life, a lot of things happen: from the moments of the absolute harmony to the dramatic falls. For most of the time, the couple cares for common daily life issues and joys that come together with raising the children, running the household or running a business. And this is exactly the life of furniture shop owners Ivana and Václav Strnadovi, two characters that a director Helena Třeštíková follows with her camera as of the year 1980 within a project The Marriage Story. Her new feature documentary about Strnad family is linked to TV films from this cycle, but most importantly it shows further shocking twists, that life brought to the couple and their children.
