Ivo and Maja live a quiet life in a dull suburb of Zagreb. One night their only son Tomica is violently attacked on the street by another teenager, beaten and left severely injured. Their world of false security collapses. As they go through an unbearable ordeal, they are forced to re-examine their lives and question everything they believed in.

Inspired by real events, Ognjen Svilicic’s heartbreaking drama is effectively painted with an understated candor that underscores Ivo and Maja devastating ordeal and the ineffective bureaucracy of public protection and justice.
