In her latest time-lapse film Helena Třeštíková follows Mallory for 13 years. Mallory is determined to return to a normal life after many difficult mishaps. Life hasn’t been easy on her but after giving birth she tries desperately to kick her drug habit, and to stop living on the streets. But while the self-destructive lifestyle was her protest against her parents’ conformist generation, it is not easy to replace heroin with a steady job and a car in which you live with a neat apartment suitable for family. The drug-inflicted wounds continue to fester: Mallory’s difficult social situation, upheavals in her personal relationships, and confrontations with the authorities often cast her back down to the bottom. But once she decided to turn her back on her dark past, she strives to help those she knows best – people on the fringes of society.
