Once Again is a documentary film following the lives of five friends - four lesbians and one transsexual person - over the span of seven years. In the period from 2007 to 2013. Ana, Noah, Mima, Helena and Ivana have passed through several intense emotional relationships – they broke off and started new relationships, fell in love, fell out of love, got disappointed in themselves as well as in others ... and they talked about all that among themselves and with the camera. We follow protagonists from marginal and discriminated social positions, who are trying to understand the nature of mutual relationships through their own “failed” love stories.

The film was created as a result of a team of authors and participants’ need to perceive the intimate processes they go through while trying to get answers to questions about reasons and ways in which love overcomes us.
