She Kept Crying for the Moon / Pasla kone na betone
Johanka (Milka Zimkova) had a fling with a well digger (Peter Vons) she had not met before and who, she was most likely certain, would never be around again. Just before his departure, they have sex and she eventually becomes single mother of a baby girl. 18 years later (her now 18-year-old daughter Paulina, Veronika Jenikova) commutes by bus to work in the nearby city, which gives the village gossips the occasional opportunity to remind her of her unknown father. A resultant conflict with her mother makes Paulina take up residence in the city.
