This highly stylized allegory by the Caban brothers employs the Don Juan legend to depict the struggle between various oppositions: societal and personal interests, ego and humility. A hard-boiled producer and an inexperienced director find it difficult to agree on the essence of an artistic work, but commercial pressures end up overshadowing their conflict. The project was shot entirely in a theater during preparations for a stage production of Mozart's Don Giovanni, and the actors' stories sharply overlap with the characters and plot of the famed opera.
