rated for 0 + years
A social drama set in Sarajevo sees a father fighting for his integrity – against a corrupt system that ruthlessly hits back. Nothing in Armin’s life is simple. His day-to-day life is paved with obstacles and mishaps. Broken-down cars, lost phones, meetings with teachers because his son is causing problems at school, missed pregnancy course appointments with his wife and a permanent lack of money. When, after a long period of unemployment, he gets a job with a security company, life for Armin finally seems to have taken a turn for the better. But on his first day at the abbatoir he makes a fatal mistake: he is honest.
