Twenty-something Rok works night shifts at a sleepy small-town gas station and slowly develops kleptomania, which eventually makes him want to steal bigger things. His night-time routine is interrupted by a mysterious girl with a bloody forehead, who seeks help in stopping the bleeding. Rok helps her with the secret intention of successfully stealing her bike, only to learn that she's allegedly a superhero with flying powers who fights crime at night. To solve the complication he's gotten himself into, Rok joins her in fighting crime and investigating the disappearance of her bike, which he himself has stolen, but in doing so he only starts digging himself into a deeper hole from which he may never emerge.

Luka Marčetić

Luka Marčetić was born in 1985 in Zagreb, Croatia, where he lived until moving to Slovenia by the age of 15. In high school he was very interested in game development and created several successful Flash games, which led to him moving to California where he worked with several startups at the age of 22. After moving back to Slovenia he graduated at the Institute and Academy of Multimedia in Ljubljana and started experimenting with different audiovisual formats for various platforms. After an increasing recognition for his short-form work he created the first Slovenian web series Day of Love, which he released on YouTube, which he followed with three seasons of Paired Up, a television show which gained both critical and commercial success. Since then he made a couple of short films and directed a feature length film in 2016, a local low-budget comedy At Hostar which broke Slovenian box office records and became the most viewed film in Slovenian history. He followed the success with a sequel in 2022 while already developing his next feature to be shot in 2024.

Temporama was established in 2013 with a goal of providing support for the new generation of up-and-coming Slovenian film-makers. Their first feature film Consequences by Darko Štante premiered at Toronto IFF in 2018, followed by a considerable international success. Their most recent focus has been on producing feature films, with several titles currently in production or development, but they remain active in short form, documentary film, television content, and experimental cinema.
