Ivan / Ivan (2017)

95 min / fiction, Feature Film

After a young woman Mara gives birth to Ivan, a chain of unexpected and nerve wrecking events begins. Ivan's father Rok, a married businessman whom Mara obsessively loves, is missing. When she finds out that Rok is accused of a white-collar crime, she gets brutally beaten by his wife's cronies. Mara and Rok manage to get together, but Mara finds herself in an impossible situation when she has to choose between her lover and her child. This is a contemporary fictional story placed in Slovenia but could have taken place anywhere. It's a personal drama on the background of corruption and a drama of making wrong choices.
