Tanya is 35, with a successful career. Her husband Mare is an architect. One Friday, Tanya comes home late at night. Mare confronts her and they exchange some edgy words; Mare is clearly jealous, he loses control of himself and slaps her in the face. Obviously, it is not the first such incident.

Tanya locks herself in the bathroom. They continue their conversation over the locked doors. Mare calms down, but when Tanya comes from the bathroom, he becomes abusive again. The noise wakes up a neighbour who reports them to the police. The police arrive and the couple calms down. When the police leave, the couple resorts to psychological abuse. What follows is the night of hateful and skilful twisting of words that unveils, step by step, all the dark secrets of their relationship. Behind a façade of a successful couple, there are suppressed feelings of inferiority, weaknesses, deceit, frustration and traumas from their youth.

Director`s Statement

The whole story takes place in one night in an apartment in Ljubljana. The shooting will take from three to five days (nights) at the most. The cast includes just two protagonists and a few mini-roles.

Although the entire story actually takes place in real time (from 3:30 to 5:00 a.m.), it is highly condensed and emotional. The key question or the suspense is whether she will or will not walk out on him. The spaces in between leave enough room for the two leading actors to include their improvisations and experiences.

95% of the plot takes place in the apartment, on several tens of square metres only. To the director, it will be a special a challenge to create the right volume of the true film illusion, to create a dark drama packed with suspense and suppressed morbid secrets that we so fervently hide from the world. There will be no scenes of physical aggression (apart from two small exceptions), no hysteria (nil!) or shouting (maybe one or two remarks in raised voices at the most). The film will be built on the verbal conflict between the two protagonists, on skilful and reproachful twisting of low-voiced words and facts, and on immense psychological stress.
