Thirteen year-old Alex went on vacation to Serbia. For four years, he was unable to return home – to the country in which he was born. He stayed on “vacation" for twenty years. Nisveta arrived from Bosnia thirty years ago. After Slovenia's independence, she gave birth to a daughter who did not officially exist for the first two years of her life. When she was a teenager, Katarina lost her parents, her flat, and her official identity. The stories of three young people who were erased by the new-born state of Slovenia from all its records and registers in February 1992, just over half a year after it gained independence. They became so-called “erased" citizens, and so did approximately 20.000 others.

Žirija pozdravlja uvrstitev celovečernega dokumentarnega filma v program. Teme, ki jih avtorji izbirajo, so izjemno pomembne in zanimive, vendar smo mnenja, da jih ne uspejo v celoti izkoristiti. Filmi so tako večkrat razvlečeni, hitro zapadejo v ponavljanje in celo samo-promocijo. Izmed filmov v tekmovalnem dokumentarnem programu, se nam je zdel najbolj kompleksen in dovršen Kozoletov film DOLGE POČITNICE.
