One night, a high-profile attorney is found on the pavement along a main road through Ljubljana. He is barely conscious, lying in a pool of blood, and covered in dog bites. Doctors at the medical centre fight to keep him alive while his wife, in shock, confronts her deepest fears. During the course of this night she will break every moral standard she has stood up for in her life.
This is a film about a society where fear is the driving force. It doesn’t provide any simple solutions, but it deals with how fragile our lives are and how everything is connected. It also deals with the fact that some wounds never heal. Because people are more vicious than dogs.
