    Comedy drama

    After leaving the ship on which she works, Sanja finds herself stranded, with nowhere to go but home. The shipyard has filed for bankruptcy, leaving many workers out of work. Boats covered with tarpaulin are scattered around the landscape, set aside for better days. A storm comes; one life is lost. Luka is waiting for the night in the woods. The night when everything could change.

    Press

    Salatić is clearly debted to Robert Bresson’s L’ARGENT (1983) but the film is also a pared-down, de-dramatised version of Luchino Visconti’s epic chronicles such as LA TERRA TREMA (1948).
