Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Politics issues dominate this sci-fi story set in 2041 in the former Yugoslavia. Most of Europe is now controlled by "thought police," but a former politician and an ex-cop are running a girls' boarding school in defiance of the current regime, modeled on the more idyllic 1980s. These partners want to revamp the ruins of Belgrade so electricity and water can be restored and the buildings made habitable again. The citizens are currently scattered across the countryside, and the film follows them, as well as the boarding school directors and a female reporter, as they all work together to confront the system.
