Life Is Fair is a social fable from Croatian life. The protagonist Ivan Croat (his last name is by no means accidental) is on the way home from the night shift. He has just collected a salary that’s insufficient to support his family; his wife who doesn’t have a job and their three children. A chance meeting with a strawberry vendor at the market will propel him to do something that will make his family’s life harder, but will also bring back a taste of happiness that they had not felt in a long time.
The story takes place in Tresnjevka, a Zagreb neighbourhood that once was a symbol of social consciousness and interconnectedness of its inhabitants. Also known as Red Tresnjevka, it was chosen to symbolically represent the consequences and the burden of the political system that has been weighing on many Croats across the country over the past years.
