A Marriage Story + Miracle

This time-lapse documentary follows 35 years of ups and downs in the married life of Václav and Ivana Strnad. From newlywed fresh-faced architectural students living in a cramped socialist-era flat in 1980, they become parents of five children, and post 1989 business owners with a family house to match. Coping with children's rebellions and Ivana's depression, the Strnads keep persevering until a deep marital crisis shakes the foundation of their relationship. Their daily routine is played out against the dramatic backdrop of political and social change where moments of absolute harmony mix with dramatic fights and shocking revelations in this astute and empathetic portrait of family life unfolding in front of the camera.
