Croatian Programme - Minority Co-Production
Mare has never flown, although she lives right next to the airport with her husband and three teenage children. She loves her family, but sometimes almost feels like a stranger in her own home. She finds herself gazing at the planes overhead, longing for change and the unknown. One day, a man moves in next door, and Mare puts her life to the test.
