SYNOPSIS:

‘Circles’ are a film about the consequences of a heroic act. Does heroism make sense and does it stimulate us to perform new good deeds? Does one humane deed spread like circles as when a pebble is thrown into the water?A contemporary story about a heroic act and its positive consequences. Three parallel stories follow the characters who are motivated by events from the past to make decisions which will change their lives. Nebojša, a witness of an event in which his best friend died confronts his best friend's murderer; Haris, who owes his life to a hero who sacrificed for him, settles the debt by risking everything and helping a woman in peril; whereas the son of one of the murderers gradually paves the way for overcoming the tragic past.
