Olja is a high school history teacher, married to a painter whose latest exhibition provoked violent reactions from Serbian nationalists. One night, a group of masked hooligans attacks her. They film the attack and upload the clip to YouTube. The next day Olja discovers that some of her students were responsible. She takes away their mobile phones, and in the heat of the moment decides to lock them in the school building, also disconnecting the school phones and the internet. In order to solve the problem together, and with inability to leave the school, students begin to communicate. During that night, a generation that was written off before they were ever given a chance will learn more than they ever expected about themselves and their classmates.
The point of the film was to depict the problems in society: poverty, youth behavior, homophobia, nationalism by presenting one class in high school, but everything is so blatant that loses a point. Everything is so stereotypically and a little bit cartoonish. The story itself has potential but Filipovic has no talent to get the most out of the story. On the other hand this is way better than his first movie "Sejtanov ratnik" which was extremely stupid. This film reminds me too much to "The Breakfast Club" and it is evident that the inspiration and maybe the whole idea was taken from there and just adapted to today's conditions. It has been raised a big noise about this in Serbia, but film really is not anything special, it is incomplete and at times even boring...
