The official synopsis reads: divorced father Marko is hardly ever alone. He is surrounded on all sides by family, friends, co-workers and neighbourhood fixers. Yet he is driven to the brink by his limited contact with the one person he loves more than anyone else – his daughter, who lives with her mother. When he starts ex parte proceedings to get to spend more time with her, he enters the Kafkaesque world of a social-services system in meltdown. His fierce, paternal love for his child is both the source of his misery and his greatest joy.

The cast also includes Snježana Sinovčić Šiškov, Vanesa Glodjo, Ksenija Marinković, Milivoj Beader, Jadranka Djokić, Goran Navojec and Nikša Butijer, among others.

“As with A Stranger, this film is both an intimate character study and a snapshot of a community,” says producer Zdenka Gold, whose recent slate includes the co-production of Cristi Puiu's Sieranevada [+see also:

. “Above all, it is an unflinching study in modern fatherhood and the parent-child bond.”

Principal photography will last six weeks.
