About friendship and acceptance: 10-year-old Jovan is suffering from a cerebral movement disorder. Shy and insecure in real life, he often dreams himself into a parallel world, in which he is a superhero hunting villains without being slowed down by his body. When the coeval Milica comes into his class, this changes his life.
Milica is the complete opposite of Jovan: she is not intimidated by anything and even takes on Nicola, the bullying "class boss". Stubbornly, she seeks contact with Jovan until finally its protective wall crumbles. They make friends. But Milica is struggling with a problem, too. Her parents are living separated, what is the fault of "the witch" – that's what Milica's grandmother calls her father's new girlfriend derogatory. Milica takes the term seriously and has even found evidence: the woman gives her father potions and makes him do unnatural contortions. Jovan is to help her to free her father from the magic spell of the witch. Will he manage to jump over his shadow and outgrow himself? Raško Miljković's feature film debut is a candid depiction of adolescent struggle and acceptance, showing how true friendship can lead to undiscovered inner strength. AD
