In the 22 minutes of this unique film experience, shot within the four walls of the apartment of the recently deceased avant-garde artist Tomislav Gotovac, the director endeavours to document a fascinating work of art, and thus pay homage to a great artist and friend. At the same time he also attempts to create another, very different and personal film about an artist in his own intimate space, about the moments in which melancholy, sadness and loneliness float to the surface... This is precisely what the author has attempted to capture in this film, with Tomislav Gotovac and about Tomislav Gotovac.
