  • Orig. Title: U braku sa švicarcem

A documentary film about people with a Swiss Franc debt in Croatia.The story follows two lines: the fate of debtors who suffer serious setbacks such as an increase in loan repayments from 6,000 to 10,000 Croatian kuna, family breakdowns, illnesses and deaths; and expert explanations of financial, legal, political, historical and sociological aspects of the problem. However, it also raises the question why the only reaction of 120,000 deceived people is merely a general feeling of helplessness instead of more concrete forms of rebellion, and whether the problem of debt can be a means to mobilise the masses.
