Synopsis

The year 1968 left a permanent mark on over half a million Yugoslavians, among them Maribor-based Metka Autor, a Metalna worker, who left for Germany at 28 in hope of a better tomorrow. In the film, she reminisces about the experience of Maribor immigrant workers while preparing dishes. Newsreel 80 records the day-to-day life of this 81-year-old, who generously and welcomingly understands the hardships of contemporary migrants.
