A biographical video essay on Pirika, a strong-willed woman reconstructing the missed opportunities in her life through the regenerative power of cinema.

When the author of the film, 43 years after the making of his film Early Works, met Pirika Capko, who played the protagonist’s younger sister, they arranged to make a tribute to the times gone by and Pirika’s life. The film focuses on the search for Pirika’s daughter who now lives in Berlin and has not contacted her mother for about ten years. They meet in Berlin’s Arsenal theatre, which screened Early Works on 25 October 2012, celebrating Berlinale’s 60th birthday.

Biografski video-esej o Piroški Čapko, snimljen 44 godine nakon njenog učešća u 2 filma reditelja Želimira Žilnika - dokumentarnog "Pioniri maleni, mi smo vojska prava" i igranog filma "Rani radovi" - kao omaž proteklom vremenu i Pirikinom nesvakidašnjem i burnom životu. Snimanje je fokusirano na njenu potragu za ćerkom, koja živi u Berlinu, a sa majkom ne kontaktira desetak godina... Žilnik sklapa ovaj esej slobodno mešajući doku-dramu i diskusione intervjue između različitih likova, dajući sliku Pirikinog života, istovremeno beležeći fragmente post-socijalističkog nasleđa koje i dalje utiče na živote mladih i starih generacija u potrazi za opstankom.
