Eva is a young artist who smokes, drinks, occasionally takes drugs, parties and finds no creative inspiration. She also has a strange love affair with her mentor, her best friend is moving to Berlin, her pay check is three months late and above all so is her period. She realizes she needs to change her lifestyle and turns to a web browser for help. Bitch is a film about a period in life where you simply get stuck and do not know how to move on. A subversive comedy in Slovenian street language. A debut feature directed by Tijana Zinajić, a distinguished theatre director and actress, and written by an acclaimed young screenwriter Iza Strehar.

Whenever I want to express that it has been a long time since I have done something, I say that I have not done it since 1991. That was when Eva was born. The protagonist of the film is a woman – a maladjusted woman who longs for the very same things as well-adjusted ones, only that she has a different way of dealing with her desires. As a director, I am interested in this maladjustment as well as in what happens when such a woman loses her period at a turning point in her life, shortly before her 27th birthday – in how she deals with the situation in her dysfunctional way!
