This unusual film surprises the viewer with three separate stories about a middle-aged woman, Draginja, who tries to get out of her skin through three different life possibilities. In the first part, on a summer day, Draginja discovers a dead body resembling her. On another summer day, Draginja hires a fake husband to show off in front of her friends and family. And finally, in the cold of a winter night, Draginja roams the streets hoping to recover her lost memory. A visually captivating and formally daring film exploring the hidden hopes and dreams of middle-aged women, reflecting on the basic human need for happiness and belonging. The movie is built around an amazing performance by Ksenija Marinković who excels in her task of morphing into very different characters with incredible lightness, supported by other star actors such as Boris Isaković and Goran Bogdan in equally well-acted and unexpected roles.
