Sat on a bench in broad daylight a young man regains consciousness, without the slightest clue as to his identity. Whereupon four masked assassins set upon and kill him. Only for him to reawaken and be faced with his pursuers anew; caught in a time warp, unable to explain the who, why or how.

The initial repetition of events is reminiscent of GROUNDHOG DAY: A nameless individual wakes up time and again on one and the same bench, on the same square, surrounded by the same people. And it doesn't last long until four assassins, masked in white, pursue him across the city. Each time he tries different escape routes, gradually coming to the understanding that he's caught up in a game in which he possesses multiple lives: despite his inevitable death, his accumulated memory appears to be bringing him closer to the truth. Is he really an innocent victim, or in fact the carrier of a dark secret?

This suspense-packed, unsettling mystery thriller is the directing debut of Filip Kovačević, a student not only of film, but also theoretical mathematics. Thus whilst he might not know all the answers, he certainly poses a number of thought-provoking questions about the complex associations that make up the human existence. CF
