THE LAST BARONESS
HISTORICAL TV SERIES
Through the prism of the life of aristocrat Margita Czóbelová, we watch the dramatic changes that take place in 20th-century Central Europe and Slovakia, letting in more light to the roots of our contemporary social reality. We watch the „big“ history and its interaction with the „little“ personal history, the intertwining of key historical points, and the stories of everyday people where history becomes personal and personal becomes history.
