The film was shot probably in 1920s in the village of Mraclin south of Zagreb, the region of Turopolje, near the town of Velika Gorica. It describes the daily life of a family community in Turopolje (Turopoljska zadruga) during one ordinary day, starting from early in the morning. Especially interesting is to see making the sign of the Cross on the bread before lunch, and the sign of the Cross on small children when they go to bed.

The region of Turopolje is known among others for its beutiful wooden Baroque churches.

Many thanks to Professor Krešimir Veselić for his kind information about this film.

Poculica on her head is a real masterpiece.
