Three best pals from high school remember the past and confront fears about the future in this modest but compelling drama. Temperamental beauty Ziva, buff soldier Gregor and tart-tongued gay guy Andrej take off for the seaside as was their wont in more carefree years. But now, as young adults, life isn’t so simple.
As they drive, drink and discuss, we learn Andrej has dropped out of university, Gregor is afraid of being killed in Afghanistan, and Ziva has a secret of her own. When Gregor and Ziva finally act on their long-simmering attraction, it triggers a bout of truth-telling that threatens the trio’s long-time bonds.
Shot on some spectacularly scenic Slovenian locations this tightly scripted, impressively shot tale marks writer/director Nejc Gazvoda as a talent to watch. His emotionally honest script captures the alienation and uncertainty of a generation that lacks purpose and ideals. Winner of six Slovenian film awards including Best Film.
