description

Living in the Croatian highlands, Goran just wants to live a simple life and drive his taxi. But the people close to him have agendas and dreams of their own, which threaten his carefree existence. When Goran's wife announces that she is pregnant, this news unleashes a darkly comic twist of events as the fiery personalities of Goran and his fellow highlanders surface and collide. Set in the cold mountain region with the white winter as a murky and unsettling backdrop, lives and lies are exposed, slowly bringing Goran, and those surrounding him, to a disturbing conclusion.
