The film "The Woman with the Rubber Gloves" is a contemporary social drama about an individual and a system in whose introspection he is invisible and silent, so, listening only to the loud majority made up of different characters, it bypasses, forgets, and does not notice him. At the centre is the school cleaner Mirna, who, while in her collective people strike for an increase in their material rights, patiently and devotedly makes the days of teachers-strikers easier by making them coffee and performing other everyday activities related to her workplace. Outside the school corridors, she is the wife of a husband with a violent nature and a heavy hand who sometimes can 'seal' a few marks on Mirna's face. She is also a mother whose children go abroad in search of a better life, as well as the daughter of a seriously ill immobile old woman.  In her life, the lives of many are mirrored. They will recognize themselves in their struggle with the system of injustice or the injustice of the system, to which all Mirnas are invisible.  And Mirna does not go through life 'in gloves'. The film was inspired by the great strike of education workers in Croatia in 2019.
