    • Synopsis
    • Maja and Ivo live in Zagreb with their son. They are close to retirement and work hard to eke out a living from their low-wage jobs. Their son Tomo has graduated from high school and is now unemployed. One day, for no reason, Tomo is beaten up by a group of kids in the street. The next day he complains of a splitting headache but when Maja and
      Ivo take him to hospital, the doctors claim his injuries are insignificant. Soon after, Tomo slips into a coma and it is clear that his life is in danger. For the first time in their lives, Maja and Ivo face a serious challenge. The institutions that should be helping them are instead acting with incredible lethargy and unconcern. Maja and Ivo launch a battle against the indifference of the authorities, for the sake of their son.
