A Film by Zoran Pribičević

Synopsis

THE BURDEN

The script follows the emotional and spiritual downward spiral of a modern man breaking down under the pressures of everyday life; we can all identify with this man. His personal conflicts and pressures are illustrated through hallucinatory slips from reality (his imagination), where we can see how he processes the events and the mounting pressure in his life. Dražen finally snaps but the burden remains…
