Description:
A comedy/drama about disillusionment and the gap between the overeducated, underemployed millennials and their parents, who had high expectations for their kids and feel powerless when watching them fail.

Špela, an art history graduate, is nearing her thirties. Her money is in part-time work, she has never been employed full time. Unlike the two of her best friends who moved abroad years ago and are not intending to return, Špela is decided to stay in Ljubljana even if most of her social life happens on Skype. When she finds herself back on her disappointed parents' couch she realizes that growing up is much tougher than she expected.

"I aimed to somewhat ridicule all the stereotypes. Our generation is not taken seriously anyhow, which is mostly because people are unfamiliar with our circumstances, the situation that is far different now than it was for young people twenty years ago. I tried to maintain a distance from this situation and see it from a humorous angle. What if, I asked myself, this is a woman who was 'dutiful' by any standard, who met all the expectations, but still failed in life?" (Urša Menart)
