Something About Life. Eight girls between the past and the future

Isolated in a large house, surrounded by the bucolic landscape of a small village in Slavonia, Croatia, eight underage women live together under the guidance of their caretakers, a coexistence in which the girls seek to put their lives back on track.

Here they grow up together. They do the household and manage the land. Once a week they get to visit from a professional drummer who teaches them the art of drumming. But Ivana, a 14-year-old girl just arrived at the house, refuses to play drums. Why?
