/ Opis projektu /

Joko is a young man who works on the cistern, he is the only breadwinner in a family. On his second anniversary of employment, Joko and his colleagues meet with foreign delegates who force boy and the rest to… carry on their back. At first, Joko is against and rebels against this humiliating activity. However, under the pressure and desire to earn good money, he subsides. The delegates will start to dominate boy more and more. “JOKO” is a grotesque vision of eternal exploitation and domination.
