A traumatic event – a sudden suicide attempt – opens a gap in the everyday life of a family of three. Their lives are upturned, as if they have been pulled into a war invisible to anyone else. Juraj Lerotić’s (Then I see Tanja, Golden Pram ZFF Checkers 2010) long-awaited feature has exceeded all expectations and arrives at ZFF with a handful of prestigious awards – best debut film, director and actor (Goran Marković) at Locarno and the Heart of Sarajevo for best film and actor (Juraj Lerotić). The poignant and intimate drama based on the director’s personal experience is Croatia’s Oscar entry.
