In April 2009, students begin their 35-day occupation of the lecture theaters in Zagreb Universityâ€™s faculty of humanities and social sciences. Free education for one and all, they chant, demanding the immediate abolition of university fees. But their protests fall on deaf ears: the Croatian government ignores the occupiers. Alongside the euphoria of youthful revolt, the film shows the associated conflicts and frustration, the self-preoccupation, and ultimate limitations. Restrained but illuminating images contrast strikingly with the verbosity of the meetings, conveying the emotions underlying this filmic chronology of protest.
