During the dictatorship, young people were sent to villages after graduation to work and get experience as well as contribute in their field of study. Her daughter, Meli, Rajmonda Bulku, was a nurse. Teto Ollga had an attitude of superiority toward villagers, but at the end, she finds herself really well among them and she becomes useful as she starts working as chef. An Albanian family come to visit the village as tourists and make a selfie with the bronze statue of Teto Ollga.
