Nightlife

One night, a high-profile attorney is found on the pavement along a main road through Ljubljana. He is barely conscious, lying in a pool of blood, and covered in dog bites. Doctors at the medical center fight to keep him alive while his wife, in shock, confronts her deepest fears. During the course of this night she will break every moral standard she has stood up for in her life.

Borders

24 October 2015, a nice day in autumn in a nice landscape. A crowd of refugees and migrants accompanied by soldiers and police officers make their way from the Schengen
border between Slovenia and Croatia towards the refugee camp in Brežice. Suddenly, the
landscape starts to appear less nice than it was.

Home

As a result of the privatization process, a five-storey building with three entrances, originally built as a temporary workers home mainly for guest construction workers from Bosnia, is now shared by nineteen owners.
Men that live there, came to Slovenia as young lads and spent 30 years working on various construction sites throughout Slovenia. When the construction companies they worked for went bankrupt, they lost everything, and their bankrupt employers owe them lot of money.
The first floor is occupied by adolescents who come from disturbed families and prefer the welfare youth home.
A few tenants found refuge here in this cheapest accommodation facility, because they had been evicted from their former apartments.
The house is large, but for most of its residents the accommodation here means that they have just a bed and not much else. Nobody calls it a home; they all thought it would be just a temporary solution, but sometimes this temporariness drags on endlessly.
Besides social marginalization they have something else in common: stories.
