Using a pure film language, writer-director Ivo Trajkov explores the story of a deaf man driven through desperation to commit murder. Upon being released from jail he begins to search for his beloved but is hindered in his efforts by his handicap. Thanks to the consistently mute stylization, the film succeeds in very vividly allowing the viewer a glimpse of the internal world of the deaf.
