The Frog

Directed by Elmir Jukić

Feature film, 2017, 78′

Film adaptation of the cult theatre drama by the Croatian writer and dramatist, Dubravko Mihanović. Zeko is a war veteran suffering from PTSD, who spends his days working in a small barber shop. With Eid approaching, he invites his brother Braco and friend Švabo to his place with the intention of using the holiday mood to try to set his brother, a gambler and alcoholic, back on the right path. However, Braco is defiant and a violent conflict breaks out between them, leaving Zeko alone with his dark thoughts. Things change after the sudden visit by a young man selling books door to door called Muki.
