A traumatic event creates a rift in a family’s everyday existence. 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 is reduced to the most acute, to a short time span and a clear situation that can be put in a nutshell: saving a loved one. » (Juraj Lerotić, réalisateur du film)
« Lerotić's film is certainly moody, not just because of Damir's incoherent stream of thoughts, but also because of the filmmaker's unorthodox but fitting stylistic decisions that provoke thinking and open different possibilities for plot-steering. » (Cineuropa)
