Bruno Anković / Feature Narrative / Croatia, Qatar / 2024 / 85 min / Original Language: Croatian / Interests: Drama, History, War


Mijo lives with his family in a poor village in the rural part of Croatia. By witnessing a cruel act by his father driven by the unbearable poverty and after carrying out the municipal authorities’ undue order to get rid of the family dog, Mijo becomes easy prey for extreme ideology, which offers him false hope for a better life and a false culprit for all the horrible things he has suffered.
Through this intimate story of Mijo’s life, sketched in four episodes which take place during different periods of his life between 1926 and 1945, a clear image of the history shines through—the constant turmoil of war, poverty, and even a promised utopia, a desperate hope for a better life.
