SYNOPSIS:

After spending four years in prison, Franjo hasn‘t changed. He was, and still is, a drug dealer. His wife is dying, and her parents want to make him look as an incompetent parent in order to take away the custody over his son, Mali. However, Mali loves his father, and wants to live with him. Franjo‘ s parenting methods are unconventional, but he has no intention of explaining them to anybody. He also won‘t let anybody take his son away from him. For his 40th birthday, Franjo will receive a gift that will solve all his problems.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT:

Actors Franjo Dijak, Rakan Rushaidat, Bojan Navojec and Hrvoje Kečkeš were my generation at the Academy. We did many projects together, but one was particularly defining – a practice performance under the title Vratite nam Dinamo (Give Us Back Dinamo), playing four impassioned football fans who are banned from the stadium so they have to watch the games at home.

Five years later I made a film with the same cast, part three of the omnibus Sex, piće i krvoproliće (Sex, Drink and Bloodshed). In this short film they return to the stadium to make trouble.

Fifteen years later, they are nowhere near the stadium, life crushes them every chance it gets and a new strength is Franjo’s son Mali (Kid). Mali watches them his whole life and doesn’t want to repeat their mistakes.
