Boris Robič is the most ordinary, and irreproachable, man. One day after supper, while he is reading in his room, somebody fires two shots at him through the window. The police arrive and start the investigation, but there are no suspects. Who would ever want to try to murder him? Was it a mere coincidence? The case is postponed, but our Boris, haunted by questions and doubts, carries on with the investigation on his own. Looking for answers, he is gradually brought to a discomforting examination of his own life.
Based on a short story by the Czech writer, Karel Čapek, this is a smartly filmed, finely acted and quietly humorous and thrilling existential drama, set in a contemporary Slovenian middle-class neighbourhood.
The film premiered in the New Directors competition of the San Sebastian IFF 2021.
