A traumatic event – a suicide attempt – creates a rift in the family’s everyday life. Their lives fundamentally change, as if they are waging a war invisible to everyone else. The source of the story is autobiographical, it is addressed in the film and highlighted by the fact that the author/director plays himself.
*The film was distinguished at this year's Locarno Film Festival, where director Juraj Lerotic won the Best First Film Award and Goran Markovic won the Best Actor Award.
