Ante Babaja made his debut with this feature film. It is famous for its so-called high key cinematography which combined with the minimalist set design based on white surfaces, creates an intriguing artificial ambience as a logical environment for the allegorical story. The allegory is in fact a critique of any authoritarian and foolish system.
