Interesting premise and plot but really bad editing
This is an interesting story from Croatia but the series is ruined by really bad editing that destroys the continuity of the plot. The scenes intended to be flashbacks are inserted randomly, and in a very disconnected way. This proves to be more distracting than contributory to the plot. In addition, the sequence in which these scenes appear is sometimes out of context for the content of the main scene. Overall, the end result is just a jumbled mess of random scenes that are very confusing. This "recipe" is repeated in every episode, and it really requires a very concerted effort if the viewer really wants to see this to the end. Had this not been the case, and the editing were done in a more professional and thoughtful manner, I would have given this a higher score. However, the level of distraction caused by the choppy editing is something that is impossible for any viewer who is devoted and knowledgeable about cinema,to ignore.
