    • Synopsis
    • It has been five years since Swedish couple NINA’s and OSKAR’s 7-year old daughter went missing on a vacation in Montenegro. Nina ́s hope of finding her daughter alive has transformed into obsession - she wants nothing but to find and punish the person that caused her so much pain. While Oskar has come to terms with the tragedy and moved on to a new life, Nina devotes herself to revenge

      The only person who hasn’t let the case go a is Montenegrin police detective NIKOLA. His biggest case that he never solved.
      But bad habits come with bad company, and what has happened in the past has now emerged. A new lead from Nikola brings Nina back to Montenegro where they reunite. She is infused with new hope of revenge. Nikola is aware that Nina is not going to let the case rest until someone has paid for it. She has come to a point where she no longer cares if the person in question is guilty or not.

      The story is told in 20 sequences and unfolds only during cigarette breaks. Each scene begins with someone lighting a cigarette and ends when they put it out. A revenge told in 20 cigarettesSee less
