A report of a kidnapped child triggers an investigation that uncovers nightmarish conditions in a seedy apartment building in Zagreb: none of the residents are as they seem and when they learn the truth about each other, the pervasive climate of mistrust in the building explodes into violence.
The hostility and misery of the characters’ lives project vivid echoes of Croatia’s recent past, as the country slowly emerges from years of ethnic violence during the Balkans war.
“A stylishly-lensed film noir.” -Variety
“A choice chunk of Croatian allegory which succeeds nicely!” -Village Voice
