Two old guys, mentors of Estonian photography and art, meet up tochat about life. They pass time in their usual way taking pictures and painting a nude model. Estonian painter Evald Okas is 94, photographer Kalju Suur 82 years old, still they both are full of lust for life and say compliments to a young model. Looking back to his long and curved career and life story ā€“ artist Evald Okas is very balanced and full of humour. And his expectations and dreams nowadays are ā€“ to paint some more nudes when he will be a hundred years old. Documentary film is like a novelette about old artists and a young model, depiction of eternal human urge towards esthetics and female beauty. As Geothe put it - Das Ewig Weibliche Zieht Uns Hinan!
