Film Synopsis:

A group of workers is fired from a factory. While some of them prepare to strike, unconvinced and depressed worker VELID (35) wanders around the small town and encounters two young filmmakers, a local and a foreigner, who are shooting a film about the condition of workers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The directors offer him a nice amount of money and Velid agrees to an interview. After the interview, Velid is convinced into acting in a love scene with a girl, while screaming anti-government slogans. As the filming progresses, Velid becomes angrier, and the directors become more disrespectful.
