As on every working day, Jana Černá gets her children ready for school. Then they all run together through a rainy morning to catch a tram. The postwoman manages to hand her a telegram from her husband. He is coming back home that evening after being away for four weeks on business. The children get off at their school and Jana carries on to the polyclinic where she works as a nurse at the children's ward. She has a lot of work ahead of her: vaccination of numerous invited children in the morning and family visits in the afternoon. Jana is anxious just thinking about how she will manage - after work, she also has to do the shopping and get to the dry cleaners on time. When a young colleague offers to fill in the patients' cards for her, she is relieved. Some of the afternoon baby visits prove unnecessary; others prove valuable for the inexperienced parents. Jana rushes and breaks her shoe heel and a stranger helps her; the lady at the dry cleaners is already closing up but kindly opens the shop for her. On the tram, Jana thinks about her busy schedule, and how much more free she would be if she stayed at home. Nonetheless, she loves her work and so she always changes her mind about quitting. At home, she finds her children in the middle of a wet floor; they wanted to help her with the cleaning. Finally, all is sorted out. Jana is in front of the mirror and her little son snuggles up to her, telling her how much he likes the way she looks. The bell rings. The father has come back home. (jakelijan virallinen teksti)
