Since Hana was widowed, she has lived alone in her big house on the edge of town. The days pass meaninglessly and her sons' weekly visits are the only ray of hope in her sad life as a pensioner – even though every meeting ends in a quarrel. Hana's life changes drastically, however, one cold winter's day when she saves ice swimmer Ivanek from drowning. Romance blossoms and a close relationship develops between the two pensioners and Hana discovers a new passion: ice swimming. Ice Mother
is a heart-warming tragi-comedy about the pitfalls of growing old and at the same time the realisation that it's never too late to reset your compass.
