A presentation of old age along the borderline between contemporary society and a Ukrainian traditional rural community facing extinction. The portrayed group of people share their place of residence, age, and experiences of historical events as well as the progressing disappearance of village life. Upon the basis of a local comprehension of the conception of age - within the context of performed social roles and health, the authoress interprets the organisation of life and the changes transpiring within the community. Observations of daily life, communication and memory of the deceased serve as a foundation for describing strivings towards the maintenance of a continuum and resistance against the gradual loss of impact on one's fate.
