This short film is part of World Showcase Shorts Program 2.

Sunchica and her retired friends enjoy the many cultural offerings of North Macedonia's capital, Skopje, on a daily basis—not to mention the free food and drinks that come with these events. But when societal judgment threatens to stop their fun, they realize just how much they need these get-togethers.
