It’s the first Christmas without her husband for a recently divorced Silvija. When her two grown-up children gather for a Christmas Eve dinner, she announces that her new boyfriend will join them. Although greeting a strange man is not very pleasant, the children try to accept these changes in their mother’s life. However, her children come to realize that Silvija’s “new beginning” is just a mask for loneliness.
