    Drama

    Troubled Andrej has reached the end of adolescence and of his parents’ patience. He is summoned before a court judge for his anger, violence, and deceit. Sentenced, with the approval of his exasperated parents, to attend a youth detention centre, the handsome and muscular teen is thrown into the correctional facility’s intimidating and testosterone-fuelled hierarchy. Standing strong against its violent initiations, Andrej finds his anchor of approval and companionship in Željko, the aggressive leader of the centre’s gang, which he soon joins in a carefree spiral of sex, drugs, and violence. Yet Andrej’s tough posturing belies an intimate fragility. Revealing this would unravel everything around him.

    Zemljič and Šturbej confidently build characters that are both instantly recognisable and increasingly ambiguous as the story goes on, while the chemistry between them is infused with remarkable nuance.

    Vladan Petkovic, Cineuropa

    The finale is one of the most devastating scenes of the year [...] From tearful shame to blackout rage, Zemljic moves from zero to sixty and back in an instant.
