One night, a high-profile attorney is found on the pavement along a main road through Ljubljana. He is barely conscious, lying in a pool of blood, and covered in dog bites. Doctors at the medical center fight to keep him alive while his wife, in shock, confronts her deepest fears. During the course of this night she will break every moral standard she has stood up for in her life.

Vesna Award
best directing
2016

Režiser, ki svoj navdih najde v dehumanizirani družbi, njenih zlaganih podobah in senzacionalizmu, se od tega oddalji in se osredotoči na intimen portret osebe, ki je sama produkt te družbe. Z minimalističnim pristopom dovoli gledalcu, da lik razume v vseh njenih razsežnostih in etičnih dilemah.

Vesna Award
best leading role
2016

Minimalistična igra in zadržana emocija zaznamujeta vzdušje filma in gledalca prikleneta na obraz lika, ki je od začetka do konca razpet med iskanjem resnice in hkrati njenim prikrivanjem.

Vesna Award
best supporting role
2016

Trojica medicinskih protagonistov s prepričljivimi igralskimi interpretacijami v filmu predstavlja zadnji zid hirajoče družbene morale, ki ji nikoli več ne bo treba pred vrata skušnjave.

Vesna Award
best production design
2016

Monokromatsko okolje in izpraznjene lokacije, v katerem se znajde glavni lik filma, so ključni element brezupne atmosfere med sončnim zahodom in novim dnem.
