Having set out for a trip in the countryside to spend a weekend together, secret lovers Mihai and Miha hit prostitute Ana in a roadside accident. Miraculously Ana awakes unscathed, and decides to accompany Mihai and Miha to their picnic.

What was supposed to be an idyllic vacation turns into a probing test for morality and loyalty – with Ana switching between angelic creature and wicked witch in a matter of seconds. There are references to Sartre’s ‘Huit Clos’, exploring the dynamics between a triangle of people. The combination of probing drama and mysterious thriller makes for a delicious, if somewhat bitter tasting experience.
