Nenad Vižin’s violent death was the catalyst for a unique phenomenon in the history of ex-Yugoslavia: 300 citizens of Rijeka signed a petition asking the police and the communist party to take responsibility. The petitioners were submitted to accusations and prosecutions. Although the events surrounding the death itself remain a mystery, it left its mark on a whole generation in Rijeka and is still a part of the social fabric of the city. This film depicts the mechanism of fear as an integral part of political systems and portrays the unique artistic rebellion that occurred in Rijeka in the 1980s as a reaction to fear and powerlessness.
