  • Croatia, 1999. Adele, a young Australian woman travels by the sea, staying in an abandoned building, which reverberates with echoes of war. She meets Antonija, whose life has been fractured by the conflicts that tore apart the former-Yugoslavia. The two women discover the uncanny intimacy that can develop between strangers. This delicate atmospheric drama reveals the private idiosyncrasies of traveling alone, and the bittersweet poignancy of ephemeral romance.
