A modern drama that deals with buried emotions and relationship gone cold. A story of a man trying to win his ex-wife back, full of comic moments. Screenings will be followed by Q&A with the director and actor Bernard Brkić.

Synopsis

Reviving a relationship is a very delicate task which inevitably brings back bad memories and calls for caution. As she assumes a distrustful and defensive attitude, he becomes more and more insecure until the moment when he spots in her bedroom an old photo of the two of them as a happy couple. That gives him courage, but his hope is not meant to last long. Bosnian actor turned director Bernard Brkic codirected with young Luka Radovic their debut film Hope.
