On a hot summer day, Draginja discovers a corpse that looks like him.
On a hot summer day, Draginja hires a husband she can brag about to her friends.
On a freezing winter night,
Draginja wanders the streets, hoping to recover her memory.
A middle-aged woman goes through three possible lives to escape her own skin.
"The filmmaking couple seems to be going the way of the Romanian New Wave filmmakers, with a minimalist approach peppered with black humour in abundance. Their style rather slips into a Kafkaesque nightmare as we see Draginja alone and vulnerable, walking through narrow, dark streets. Is this a way of conveying the accelerating fragility of her mental health? The vulnerability that Marinkovic's sensitive performance exudes ensures that this often surprising film never loses touch with an ever-so soulful and emotional reality." (Allan Hunter, Screen Daily)
