"Anamarija has just come back from her two-year maternity leave and enthusiastically starts her new job as a counselor in an elementary school in Zagreb. At first, she tries to stay out of the power games and conflicts between colleagues and parents and concentrate on her work as a school pedagogue with the children. However, in order to survive in this environment full of burned-out and apathetic teachers and improve her relationship with the principal, Anamarija must be strategic."
"The dynamic camerawork, carefully choreographed scenes, and precise direction underscore the strength of this self-aware debut by Sonja Tarokić about the struggle of the individual within the system and the efforts required to maintain one's integrity. Moreover, the film is a complex study of an institution whose employees have taken on one of the most responsible roles an adult can have - educating future generations."
