Goran Paskaljevic

Short description:
The breakdown of one-party system caused an impact on Yugoslav social plan. A boy lives under the circumstances of family decomposition, whose parents can not find their way. Father, a music professor, does strange jobs to earn some extra money, and mother, a translator, accepts helping older, tired people for a modest sum. Jumping suddenly into his mother's job, the boy starts to wake old men, to move their sleepy souls, to inject them will for life, to gather them together. But, in the encounter with older people, the boy also wins what his family forgot to give - love, understanding, care and tenderness. But, the laws of biology act and the boy's friends slowly disappear, and he starts feeling painful losses. With the last remaining old man, the boy will run off to sea coast, without his parents knowledge and spend several unforgettable days there. That is the boy's first view on the big blue, and the old man's last one.
