The passage of time during the pandemic has grown to become its own character. The world froze, together with the camera on a balcony. It’s watching a shard of the world in a frame and a unique slice of time we have all found ourselves in. But life continues under the balcony. New characters are moving along like on a stage.
Nazli and Emre are a young couple that love each other and seek to enjoy themselves. Sexuality is not taboo for them. They freely and joyfully desire each other. Their only obstacle is others. The Criminals gives a glimpse into how an entire country is being turned into a gigantic prison, a society where everyone is being watched and controlled.
Nenad is a worker at a train repair factory in Prijedor, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and as many young people around him, he plans to get work in Slovenia. Between nostalgia for the homeland and a dream of a better life, the film explores the dilemmas that arise when you decide to leave your country.
