Melodrama

Melodrama

Port town in Dalmatia swings from bora to sirocco, from sea to people. In these hard times of recession, degradation and unemployment people live on the streets, on the squares and in bars, staring at the sea and the better tomorrow. Or staring at each other as they do in our completely “ordinary” love story:

She is a minor and living with her mother. Her mother owns a little shop hardly holding it up. Mother has been divorced for a long time, disappointed in love and life, but not in money. She does not like the fact that her daughter is in love with a hopeless docker worker. At the same time, He, while working in the shipyard dreams of making money one day and starting a better life. He lives with an old disabled aunt who adopted him when his parents died long time ago.

They – She and He – love each other more than anything in the world. And live an ordinary life until the prospect of an oil drillhole where he could earn a lot of money...

Politics, capitalism, passion, forgotten pains and quite sufferings interfere with an ordinary love story. And an ordinary love story becomes a sad-ending story and those who can love will love it.
