‘Wait a Second..!’

Tanja Golić

When my father saw ‘Wait a Second..!’, he said it looked like a fairy tale and that life was surely not like that. I do not know. But what I have realized is that, whatever we might want from life, whatever attitudes and expectations we approach it with, life also approaches us in its own way. My film talks about how to accept this fact.
