Storyline

Jeton, a 10-year-old boy is sitting on the edge of a balcony on the 4th floor. Neighbors and passers-by, terrified by this situation, call the police and firefighters for help. But the situation quickly becomes unmanageable. Its an observation of the authentic mindset of our society, which quickly may deviate into an absurd situation. Shot in one long sequence that begins in the sunset and ends at twilight, as a cinematic expression that reinforces immersion into an absurd situation, revealing the reality of everyday life in today's Kosovo society. Written by Lendita Zeqiraj

An entertaining short

An entertain vignette of how something small can change the dynamic of an otherwise typical day, and how different people react to the same situation.

The way it was filmed made you feel like you were just part of the crowd, which I thought was rather cleverly done. The interplay between the different characters making up the crowd made for an interesting fly-on-wall style of filming, and I must confess I was a little sad when it ended as I was happy just hanging out with this bunch.

I chose to watch it because I had never seen a film from Kosovo before, at least not one I can remember, and this was the only one I could get my hands on at the time.
