Winter Flies / Zimske muhe (2018)

85 min / fiction feature, Feature Film

The story begins at a police station with an interrogation of Mára, a teenager accused of stealing a car and driving it across the country. The boy will not reveal who he is, where he is from, or whether the car, registered on the other end of the country, has been stolen or just borrowed. The cops cannot believe that the boy could have possibly made such a long trip on his own. Gradually, Mára begins to tell a story full of fantastic details. The line between the truth, lies and manipulation is very thin.
