After returning home from college to live with her parents, 28-year-old Aleksi struggles to fight off her boredom as she searches for a job as a photographer. With limited prospects, Aleksi ignores her pressing responsibilities by following her impulses with various men: Christian, an American photographer; Goran, a local musician with traditional values that oppose her own; and Toni, an older rich man that lures Aleski with luxury parties and expensive drugs. Shot entirely on the beautiful Croatian coast, this indie-style dramedy tackles the topic of “the second coming of age” and figuring out life goals on the brink of one’s thirties. Introduction by Stan Stepanic (UVA)
