The movie is based on tiny pieces of destiny narrated by more than 500 people. Their stories are like X-rays, identifying metastatic changes of society.

Close-Up in Total was made based on the idea taken by Slaviša Mašić from over 200 episodes of the TV series In the Name of the People by Josip Pejaković and drama studio Allmanah. In front of the camera people forget, feelings are open, they cry, they show a smile, they are telling their problems... The film builds its dramatic quality on fragments of the life stories of over 500 people.
