One story, three angles. In three chapters, the film's plot is told through the eyes of two brothers and their mother Milena as we witness a tragic situation which befalls the family as the result of an accident. The two sons, adolescent Alek and his younger sibling Veli, are unable to leave their house, the only place where they feel safe. After a period of time, however, their refuge becomes a prison for the boys.Written by

Depressive and boring
I have no doubt that this film was made with serious and deep ideas, but I wonder why so much depression, so much sadness in a way with no way out. Personally, I was left with the feeling that I wasted my time with such a silly misfortune. Would a trivial accident cause so much depression? Compelling actors in the service of a masochistic ritual.
