Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2017, 122′
The film has a mosaic-like structure and tells the story of a post-war provincial town as it follows the fate of twenty characters over several autumn days. However, most of the story happens within one day, when cranes are flying over the town, during the time of the Professor’s funeral, a character that comitted suicide one day prior in a bizarre fashion: he shot himself with a gun used for stunning cattle. Mostly because of this detail, the Professor’s fellow citizens, each in their own way, try to understand the motives of his unusual suicide. By doing so they esentially reveal who they are, and what the town where all this is happening is like, creating a fresco in which the main character is the town itself.
