V mediteranski atmosferi Rajase v finih detajlih zrcali odnos mladega para na počitnicah z vsemi malimi nevšečnostmi, v katerih se prepoznamo gledalci in se pravzaprav smejimo sami sebi. Lahkotnost in briljanca filma v vseh segmentih njegove izvedbe –scenarija, kamere, režije, igre. Odlična izvedba celotne ekipe filma odpira naš »periferni vid«.

Nominations
K3 Award
best short
2019

"With a brave and innovative, yet old school, approach to the narrative, the film is a real visual feast that is also able to convey a unique view on difficult topics such as drug addiction and consumerism. The combination of dark humor and disturbing images, shot with an extraordinary level of craftsmanship, evokes the works of the masters of adult animation such as Jan Svankmeyer or the Quay Brothers. Therefore, the K3 Festival Jury Award for the Best Short Film goes to SOMA."
