Life hasn’t been easy on Mallory. After the birth of her son, however, she managed to overcome her drug addiction, and she also got through the time when she was a homeless on the streets with her child. Today, Mallory is studying social work and has made it her profession to help people whose circumstances she herself is well acquainted with, people on the periphery of society. Director Helena Třeštíková, the great master of long-term observations, has succeeded in making an impressive film with MALLORY, which proves that there can be a turn for the better even in seemingly hopeless life circumstances.

The film will be accompanied by a discussion in English with director Helena Třeštíková, moderated by Ivana Formanová (IDF).
