One night, 30 years after the Revolution, three former classmates turned movie directors reunite on the banks of the Black Sea. Together they watch the films they have made as students and old dreams are reignited.

These weekend spectators try to hide their feeling of failure behind the old images that have rusted away together with the Wreck, near which they’ve first met.

Director's Statement

the end of the movie when he exits the cinema, he realizes that 30 years have passed.
I tried to make a movie about time. What happens with a film, which immortalizes the present, with 24 images/sec. (here a 16mm film). I realized that everything depends on the person who watches this movie. Here our hero is the observer himself. It's the spectator in a movie hall.
Quantum mechanics has analyzed this phenomenon best and has put the role of the observation in regards to the observed. As much as I seek, I have not found a satisfying definition of time. Be it physical-mathematics, philosophical, art, etc. I challenge you to do the same and you will realize that whatever the answer you come up with you will not be fully satisfied. Yet everyone has the impression that they know what time is!
The same thing happens with love. We think we know what it's all about when we're in love, but we hardly manage express it to those around us! Time and Love have opened together a path that I explored in the script. I think I made a story about the loss of a love to time. A love that created the film and inspires the viewer who discovers it.
