    • Synopsis
    • This film is about IVO (60), a farm labourer who works for an agri-business conglomerate in rural Croatia. Many years ago, he was convicted of rape and although he served his sentence, the legacy of his crime still lingers. Three loosely interlinked stories, taking place over a single night and dealing with Ivo in different ways, gradually give us a stark but compassionate picture of Ivo's life, and of a rural community which is overshadowed by the aftermath of the 1991-1995 war, just as Ivo is still haunted by the crime he committed so long ago.
