Made by two women, one working for the UN and the other for the Czech animation studio Kratky Films, this is a wry look at the problem faced by women everywhere: the double work load of a full-time job and being a housewife. The story shows chauvinistic men and boys who relax after work whilst the women prepare meals, wash-up, wash clothes and change nappies. In a dream the woman imagines a different world where the work at home is shared between the sexes – an impossible dream?
