    • Synopsis
    • A city neighborhood is kept awake during the night by wild and frightening barks.They do not come from a dog though,but from a lonely inhabitant of that city,a construction engineer named Landi.After being reported by neighbors,he is sent to a psychiatric ward.There, a doctor tries to discover the causes of such a state of mind and,through Landi’s retrospective confession,the fate of the common individual of the Albanian transition is revealed.It is this individual who is crushed,lifted up and then brought down again by the change of socio-political systems,systems which do not give him a chance to express his own identity.Out of this chaos ,the individual emerges lonely and he accidentally stumbles upon a dog that is lost by its owner.As it turns out,this dog belongs to a foreign embassy and a semi – Mafioso group are looking for it ,for their own interests.Unable to protect himself during all his life, Landi insistently protects the dog,his only true friend.It is during this existential endeavor that he swaps roles with the dog and in a climactic moment of that struggle,he performs his dramatic bark.
      In Landi’s story the doctor traces step by step his own story as well as that of hundred of thousands of his transition generation peers.It is only natural than that,in the end,he joins his patient’s barking, as a sad night ends and a new day begins with a suspicious dawn.
