In a village Litmanová in Eastern Slovakia, each month between 1990 and 1995 Holy Mary appeared to two girls, Ivetka and Katka. They were ten and eleven when it started. Both of them saw her, Iveta could also talk to her and receive her messages. After the revelation ended, Katka got married happily and lives her civic live. The other, Iveta, went to a monastic community and spent 9 years there. After fulfilling her temporary promises she decided to leave... The place – Zvir Mountain near Litmanová – became a famous place of prayer; millions of people have come there already and many more are coming every day... The film is a recollection of Iveta's inner and outer experience of meeting Mary, asking the question: how to live with a revelation?
