/ Project description /

Early capitalism, somewhere in the mid-eastern Europe. A teenage girl runs away from her home, far away from the depressive surroundings of her village. The escape turns out to be a quite unpleasant adventure, and her early enthusiasm about the hitch-hike falls when she finds herself in the city outskirts in the middle of the night. No living soul, and she has nowhere to go, and the weather prognosis for the summer isn’t optimistic… She is forced to sleep under a bridge, where she meets a clearly drunk figure balancing unsafely on the guardrail. That’s how she meets Skinny – a kind of unstable weirdo. Skinny lives in a camping van, which he uses to run his not-so legal job errands…Our protagonist has no choice but to take the sleepover offer. And from now it only gets weirder. A particular affection grows between them – sometimes they resemble a couple, sometimes they act like brother and a sister.
