Awarded in Berlin and Oberhausen, the short film focuses on Julija, aged 13, who flees her abusive home together with her mother to find refuge on an idyllic Croatian island where she previously lived. She is looking forward to reawakening her friendship with Ana, who, however, mainly pays attention to her boyfriend. Ana’s rejection opens Julija’s unhealed wounds of the past and arouses in her the monster of violence she thought to have left behind.
