The Sunday series is about the ageing of urban people. The viewers find themselves in the vivid world of pensioners who are ready to make good time by Sunday dancing. In spite of express prohibition, they bring to the dance hall their own food and alcohol and take out the best pieces from their wardrobes. They thus return to the times of their youth and awaken a kind of an inner rebellion against the expectations of society, against the general idea about how a “normal pensioner” should behave like. However, these at the first sight joyful dancing Sundays are marked by feelings of loneliness and nostalgia for times long past and for people who are no longer among us. Each Sunday, the dance hall turns into a brave world of fulfilled desires.
