I Am Frank
Croatian Programme - Minority Co-Production
The unexpected inheritance from their father sparks a dispute between Frank, a rebel who still swears by the solidarity and ‘old’ socialist values, and his brother Brane, a classic transition profiteer. While Frank is tracking the source of money which his late father, a protagonist of the Slovenian independence, made through shady dealings, Brane resorts to his lawyers and a network of his father’s cronies, who are no strangers to mafia tactics. Brane’s wife Ines, who has in fact loved Frank all along, finds herself caught between the two brothers.
