This story of unrequited love takes place in the time of ideology refreshment between the WWII and communist putsch. Hampl, a well-known civil engineer, moves to a small town in South Slovakia with his young wife, Nada. She is drawn to the local young teacher, Daniel Orešanský, who came back from his involuntary war engagement with scars on both body and soul. At first, Nada is committed not to give in to charismatic Daniel, but the summer is hot and the intoxicating smell of agave blossoms make it this commitment hard to keep. Yet it is written in the stars that agave blooms only once in thirty years.
