Three friends work in the mountain cottage during the summer. Their simple mountain life is disturbed by the arrival of a young female student. The master of Slovak genre film Marin Hollý chose the main actors excellently, while the success in audience reception was also helped by the screenplay of the dramatist Ivan Bukovčan and the photogenic Slovak mountains, captured by the wide-angle tape of Karol Krška. The filming itself was an adventure; it lasted for over a year and was very complicated due to unstable weather in the mountains.
