After arriving at their small apartment at the seaside, Anđelka and Vlado find their garden neglected, the roses and oleander withering. They learn that the reason for this is the tragedy that befell their neighbour Marija, an island local who took care of their oasis of peace out of season. Despite their understanding and compassion, Anđelka and Vlado are restless: the numbers don’t add up and the calculation is hard to ignore. Subtitles: EN
