Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A Solvenian student at the famed FAMU Film School in Prague falls into a dangerous downward spiral after a secret admirer turns to fraud in order to finance her ambitious first film in director Janja Glogovac's entry into the 2007 Rotterdam Film Festival. Gina has just graduated from Prague's prestigious FAMU Film School. Having honed her craft under the tutelage of famed filmmaker Otakar Vavra, Gina dreams of shooting her first film but has yet to find the right script. Emotionally lost and increasingly distant from her boyfriend, Gina longs for the day that she will find true love and become a successful filmmaker. Over time, Gina falls into a dangerous cycle of partying with friends - her personal experiences gradually merging with her ideas for a film. Tomas is Gina's best friend, yet he longs to prove his love for her by raising the money needed to finance her debut film. When Tomas fakes a car crash with the intent of collecting a sizable insurance claim - which he will in turn hand over to Gina - both he and the unassuming object of his affections each find their lives taking a turn for the worse.
