Direkt: Ordinary People

Nebojša Slijepčević

Slađan, Marijana, Tibor and Otilija are four very ordinary young people; the only thing that makes them different from the others of their age are a few physical disabilities. That, however, makes their life very different from the life of most of the other people. They are facing problems and everyday situations that others would not even think about.
