Blue trampoline. Sunny skies above the city. That’s the spot! The place where our stories intersect. Seven-year-old Lina is running away from her mother when she meets teenager Nika and forty-year-old Nikolina. They could be the reflections of Lina’s potential future. Sharing a similar destiny, the three protagonists change their lives and reveal secrets of painful family rifts. Katarina Zrinka Matijević’s feature debut is a film about love, but by no means a romance. It explores the two sides of the relationship between mother and daughter trapped in a circle of violence. The film premiered at the Pula Film Festival where Tena Nemet Brankov won the Golden Arena for Best Supporting Actress.
