Synopsis
Živa, Andrej and Gregor are best friends since high school. Gregor is a soldier who is about to embark on a mission to Afghanistan and Živa is going to study abroad. Andrej is their gay friend who hates everything, himself included. They decide to go to a road trip to the seaside like they did when they were in high school. While driving, they find an abandoned car and destroy it; they run over a cat and bury it with dignity. They are destructive and controversial, but gentle and caring towards each other.
