Synopsis

The central motif of this film is the total solar eclipse of August 11, 1999. While the world celebrated, most of Serbia’s population barricaded themselves in their homes and nuclear bunkers, in fear of the lunar shadow. Using this event as a metaphor for nation’s unclean conscience about the consequences of its political choices, the director confronts her country’s wartime and criminal past, and the evil that is still on the loose today.
