A nurse and her surgeon-lover are part of the resistance movement in 1940s Czechoslovakia. When they are discovered, her lover flees and she must find a place to hide. A patient whose life she saved, a man from a remote mountain village where time stopped 150 years ago, agrees to hide her as his wife. At once epic and intimate, Zelary matches a resilient urban woman with a compassionate rural man in the spectacular Moravian countryside.
