Spela graduated in Art history which means she’s never had a steady job. Her best friends moved out of the country years ago and are not returning, but Spela decided to stay in Ljubljana. At 29 she finds herself lonely, unemployed and stuck sleeping on her disappointed parents’ couch in the midst of Slovenia’s seemingly never-ending economic crisis. She decides to turn her life around, but a newfound friendship with a group of similarly fated losers threatens to even further prolong her extended adolescence.
