Through their dialogue we witness the exasperating, yet often very funny miscommunication between genders. Their monologues give us unique insights into female and male psyche and how deal with a myriad of issues that arise in the process of seduction, love and betrayal.
TWO OF US
After their seemingly chance encounter in a night-club Lena and Anya become inseparable. Together, they cruise the world of Zagreb glitterati pushing their ideas of freedom, emancipation and cool to the utmost limits. Whilst their intimacy becomes more intense with each day, there is still a dark secret at the heart of their friendship: Anya’s secret lover is in fact Lena’s father. This unorthodox triangle, at the beginning just an edgy game for the girls, draws them deeper into a web of lies and split loyalties, challenging their ideas and preconceptions about themselves, family, love, fidelity, and most poignantly masculinity.
The Two of Us is a story about the extraordinary mutations of a traditional family unit in the context of a society in transition. It challenges traditional notions of the role of women in society, and through the prism of three women - a daughter, a wife and a mistress - it demystifies the concept of male in contemporary, Eastern European post-socialist world.

SEVEN DAYS IN ZAGREB
Zagreb, 2010. This is a capital of a young country, desperately hoping that ‘transition’ is finally going to expire from their lives. The characters live beyond their means and try to make sense of the world around them, each of them finding purpose in a particular belief that will bring some grounding to their life. For Mustafa it’s organising and presiding over a neighbours association which petitions to keep out the influx of inappropriate tenants. For Ana, who runs a dog shelter, it’s implementing the EU rules on dog adoptions. For Tanja, it’s organising a home birth to have her first baby, even if it means breaking the law. For Daniel it means leaving a high-flying consultancy job to become a life coach. Only Natasha, faced with failing to meet the criteria for adopting an abandoned dog, seems to think that none of the above makes sense.
