When we first met Milan and Silvana, they seemed nice and just a little bit silly. They obviously loved each other, but were totally different. He, with his great love for cows and nature and she, wanting to open a hotel. They couldn’t help it but to quarrel all the time. Their marriage, seemed to us as a small but accurate sample of the modern world with it's conflicts: in between nature and civilization, tradition and modernity. We knew that we had a story, but we didn’t know how it would end. And when nature shocked us with a tragic accident during the shootings- it gave us a glimpse of the unwanted but inevitable resolution to this conflict. Milan and Silvana live in Medulin, a small coastal town in Croatia. Milan breeds cows on a nearby island, as many did before him, but Silvana wants more than that.
