Like the literary character Robinson Crusoe from the book written by Daniel Defoe, Blaženka likes to imagine she is on a desolate island and has to find a way how to survive. After the death of her mother she stays together with her baby brother and has to take care of the family. In this difficult situation, she plays this role-game that helps her to deal with the sudden loss of her mother.

Kachyňa again uses poetic images with symbols to present the inner world of the teenage girl (such as scene when he shows the girl lying in the bed with the horizon of an open sea to signify not only her loneliness and desolation, but also the presence of death or more exactly the world of dead symbolized by the sea).
