How I Beat Glue and Bronze

Kako Sam Pobedio Lepak I Bronzu

62nd TIFF: Greek Premiere

Following the daily life of a factory worker Mihajlo in a neglected industrial town, testimonies about his life are given by people from his closest surrounding. At times, these people are seen as part of Mihajlo's daily routine, but after the character leaves the stage, their voices remain as the voice of the narrator. What they don't know is that Mihajlo is obsessively stealing tools from the factory and suffering from lost love. What they can't anticipate is what one morning is going to happen.
