At Daybreak

Synopsis:

One morning, an old janitor in a mountain hut finds a scared, young woman hiding in the kitchen. A few moments later, a middle aged man - her lover, enters the hut, introduces himself as her uncle and starts asking about her. The old man decides to protect her and lies, saying he hadn't seen anyone around. As the film approaches its wild end, that decision costs him dearly. The story is situated in 1992 in Macedonia, just after the fall of the Communism. The new transitional system brings new 'values', embodied in the relationship of the young woman and her lover. It's a wild affair full of broken promises and possessive love, deeply contrasting with the simple and quiet life of the old man and his wife.
