Zoki med kupi smeti na velikem odlagališču na nekem hrvaškem otoku najde mikrokaseto. Natančna analiza tega odvrženega predmeta se spremeni v poklon možnostim in domišljiji. 

Among the garbage heaps of a big landfill on a Croatian island, Zoki uncovers a microcassette. A close study of the discarded object serves as a tribute to chance and imagination

Directors' statement:

Our film is based on a documentary microcassette audio recording that was found on a junk yard in Croatia some years ago. The voice of a little girl which we heard on the tape served us as inspiration for our own imagination and our filmmaking process, so departing from real life we drifted into our imagination

We combined different approaches to tell our story, using fiction, documentary,experimental and animation styles, enjoying our freedom of expression.

Hope you will enjoy our film as much as we enjoyed making it!
