No psychological or sociological study has yet analyzed extended youth as a syndrome, although it is a dominant feature in the life of the young people in Serbia. Living with parents in one’s late twenties or in thirties is a normal thing there. The question is – is Serbia an infantile nation or is it a poor economic an social climate that stimulates this trend? “How to get your own apartment when you are twenty-seven?” wonders the young girl whose home-made theater we are watching here.
