A Wonderful Night in Split (Ta Divna Splitska Noc)
A film by Arsen Anton Ostojic

Croatia, 2004 (100 minutes)

Synopsis
The setting is a ghetto in the medieval city of Split, where several stories unfold between ten o'clock and midnight on New Year's Eve. While crowds gather in the old square to listen to a rock concert, three American sailors wander the streets and alleys looking for a prostitute and a drug pusher double–crosses his dealer. A widow and her grieving child, and an addict desperate for a fix, are pulled into a scheme to ship heroin to Munich, and a young couple plots a rendezvous before midnight. Lives are unraveled on this “wonderful night,” amid fireworks and the countdown to midnight.
