After losing her job as a hostess aboard a ship, Sanja finds herself stranded, with nowhere to go but home. Returning to her small coastal hometown in Montenegro, she discovers the shipyard has filed for bankruptcy, leaving many people out of work. Boats covered with tarpaulin are scattered around the forgotten landscape, set aside for better days. A storm comes, and one life is lost, while Luka waits for the night in the woods, a night in which everything could change.

Production Company Profile

Meander Film is a new Montenegrin film production company based in Nikšić. Its founders are two young Montenegrin film directors - Dušan Kasalica and Ivan Salatić. Guided by the idea of developing modern trends in the field of art film in Montenegro, and encouraged by the fact that recently in Montenegro there’s a wave of young, creative and courageous authors who are keeping up with a modern understanding of film, Kasalica and Salatić established Meander Film. This way they begin a new adventure with the desire of bringing together young professionals that walk hand-in-hand towards the same goals.
