On an exquisite Croatian island, tensions rise between father Ante (Leon Lučev) and daughter Julija (Gracija Filipović), as Ante’s verbally abusive patriarchal ways become too much for Julija to bear. When a millionaire friend of Ante’s comes to visit, Julija sets into motion a plan that will force an already strained relationship towards its fiery breaking point. Gorgeously shot on a location bathed in sunlight and blue waters, a passionate tale unfolds, marked by a perfectly paced descent into rebellion. Director Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović’s brutal yet luscious first feature won her the Golden Camera at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
