Synopsis

Asja, a 40-year-old single woman lives in Sarajevo. In order to meet new people, she ends up spending her Saturday in a speed dating event. She is matched with Zoran, a 43-year-old banker. However, Zoran is not looking for love, but forgiveness.

Director’s Statement

What defines us: our ethnicity, religion, gender? What divides us or unites us? This is a story about precariousness of life, about chance encounters that bring together the aggressor and the victim, reviving the painful past; this is a story of impossible connections, of love and absurdity. The film begins as a humor-driven excursion and develops into a mountain of experiences, as the characters seek recognition and responsibility to reach a point of forgiveness. I see this film as a symphony of choreographed movements unpacking layers of emotions which slowly entangle the viewer to a point of vertigo-like state. Location is essential: an 80’s hotel, built in brutalist architectural style, witness to Ex-Yugoslav past, and then there is the injured city of Sarajevo, a testament to open wounds and pains of former times.
