Synopsis

LENART (30) is a shy, introverted, not so young anymore filmmaker, who is unhappy with his current success and recognition in the film industry. Because nobody is taking him seriously, he develops an alter-ego, a new persona, who is everything he is not. His alter-ego is overconfident, cocky and full of big words.

Lenart enrols back in film school to finish his studies after a long break. He gets a young and already very successful classmate, student academy award nominee, 21-year-old girl Veronica. This makes him look even more unsuccessful for his age.
Although he uses his alter-ego on a regular basis, still nobody is taking him seriously. At the end, he reaches the point when he doesn’t know what is his actual personality and what is fake.
