A compassionate but fiercely honest tale about love, love gone wrong, and the emotional scars that linger long after the bruises fade. Screenings will be followed by Q&A with the director Katarina Zrinka Matijevic.


Blue skies and sunshine, a trampoline, a young girl free-falling in slow motion. The film follows three soulmates – a traumatized child, a rebellious teenager and a thirtysomething woman, as they deal with the emotional fallout from their past, and the legacy of violence inflicted by a loving parent. When their paths intersect, they share a moment of mutual recognition, and a shared longing for clarity in the chaos that has dogged them for years. Katarina Zrinka Matijevic’s debut feature premiered at the Pula Film Festival where Tena Nemet Brankov won the Golden Arena for Best Supporting Actress.
