Damir and Bruno are brothers. Damir has just committed a failed suicide attempt. Bruno and their mother seek to protect Damir not just from himself, but also from the unsympathetic system consisting of rude and suspicious members of the police and the robotic, sometimes even arrogant medical personnel.
“I based the film on a personal experience. As a filmmaker, I even find some fascination in the fact that the atrocity I lived through was even possible. Until this incident, I hadn’t realised that things could get out of control so quickly, so radically, without any warning or explanation. Slavoj Žižek was once asked why he published so extensively. He replied that in the process of writing he kept saying to himself he’d never publish it. I think I wrote this film in a similar way – I was telling myself I'd never shoot it. I even ended up acting in it.” (Juraj Lerotić)
