Along Came a Prince

At a theater camp party, a schoolboy named Alex gets drunk to a semi-conscious state. This circumstance is used by the adult counselor Vicky to persuade him to have sex. The next day, some praise Alex for his luck, but others blame his inappropriate behavior, while the protagonist himself does not understand what to do. A story about a violation of the mutual consent principle, where not a man but rather a young woman misuses her position.

When I Explode

On the eve of his 30th birthday surprise party, Chris finds out that he’s got a bomb in his belly. At first, he tries to conceal it from the guests, but when everything gets out of control, sapper Alim comes to the rescue. Bomb as a metaphor for the crisis of thirty-year-olds in a tragicomedy from the Netherlands.

At the suggestion of her powerful patron Vassil, 13-year-old Nina steals money to move to Spain. But when the robbery victim Yana catches the pickpocket red-handed, she decides to help her rather than turning over to the police. A grim but hopeful coming-of-age story of a young girl, reminiscent of the Dardenne brothers' Rosetta.

A homeless girl is attacked by three masked men. Two hapless superheroes— a brother and sister with the ability to slow down time and create astral projections—come to her aid. Having paused the moment for a while, they try to save the girl, jointly plotting ways to escape. A sci-fi film inspired by the video game Life Is Strange, Moment explores the themes of homelessness, domestic violence, and the war on drugs.
