    Stola has been spending his summer in the sweltering haze of festival parties. But one day, he runs into Roko, an old acquaintance, who is on a mission to discover medieval frescoes at a nearby monastery. Roko convinces Stola and a random group of partygoers to join him in his search. However, when their bus breaks down in the middle of nowhere, their brief excursion turns into an allegorical journey into the unknown.

    Press

    A discrete dose of magical realism cloaks the film, and Bezinović is good at keeping the plausibility of this little portrayal of a bitterly post-war generation of Yugoslavians and Europeans relatively high, just like in the book the film is based on.
