The story rests on the breakdown of the idyllic relationship between Marko and Dunja, caused by the lack of respect for the loss of work and financial decay that followed. As the story progresses, the burden that they, as parents are not able to bear, falls more and more on the shoulders of children. It is a common story in Slovenia, but it could happen anywhere else. For those to whom this phenomenon is a known concept, it’s a painful experience, for others it should be a warning.

Ice-hockey is not just some sport. It's related to the culture, politics and society of Czechs and Slovaks like no other! CHASE looks for these connections in talks with witnesses of past dark times and moments of glory too.
The Dead Nation is a documentary-essay, which shows a stunning collection of photographs from a Romanian small town in the 1930's and 1940's. The soundtrack, composed mostly from excerpts taken from the diary of a Jewish doctor from the same era, shows us what the photographs do not: the rising of the anti-Semitism and eventually a harrowing depiction of the Romanian Holocaust, a topic which is not very talked about in the contemporary Romanian society.
