Hana is getting married, Maja is moving in with her boyfriend, Bažo is off to Canada, but there are no radical changes in David’s life. His friends grow distant, and now he must face the problem of dealing with his newfound loneliness. A congenially energetic film about the void that often grows between the world of carefree partying and the settled life of adulthood.


Synopsis

Hana, Bažo, Maja, and David have always been inseparable. But as they approach thirty, their paths begin to diverge. Hana gets married, Bažo goes to work in Canada, and Maja moves in with her boyfriend. In David’s life, however, nothing changes, and he himself isn’t sure whether or not that’s a good thing. He would certainly be better equipped to face his problems among friends rather than in lonely isolation. Using the naturally charismatic David as an example, this energetic, subtly ironic film comments on the void that often grows between the world of carefree partying and the settled life of adulthood, which at the moment seems some distance away.
