Guti (35, Slovenian) and Sig (50, Icelandic) wake up naked and handcuffed together on a riverbank near Ljubljana. Sig is suffering from memory loss, while Guti remembers he tried to help the drunken Sig in a fight with skinheads. Sig has no passport or any clue about his identity – the skinheads have taken everything. Guti (whose “house has been repossessed by the bank while his life has been taken by his ex-wife”) is trying to build a new home on a river raft. He introduces Sig to his friends – suburban misfits who remind Sig of the “hidden people” legend. The film is a sort of a fairy-tale dramedy about new beginnings in life. It is also a self-ironic story about small countries and nations (Slovenia and Iceland) in the “big” Europe; about the unexpected connections that can help us find our place under the sun and go on with our lives. Finally, it is also about a vast number of invisible people who feel like “internal refugees” in the European societies in which they are living.
