Director: Atoneta Alamat Kusijanovic
Starring: Gracija Filipovic, Danica Curcic, Leon Lucey
Julija (Gracija Filipovic) appears to lead a fairytale life on a gorgeous Croatian island. She swims, dives and wants for nothing, but her father, Ante (a repellent Leon Lucey), is a controlling bully of a man who seeks to keep her like a caged bird.
A visit from Ante’s millionaire friend Javier (Cliff Curtis) is the key to a lucrative development deal. However, there is an unspoken history between Javier and Julija’s mother, Nela (Danice Curcic).
Simmering tensions slowly come to the boil as Julija’s defiance and growing allure put her on a collision course with a father desperate to maintain the status quo and secure his deal.
