KLOPKA (The Trap)
A modern day film noir, described by its director as "a Balkan version of Crime and Punishment', Klopka takes us to the heart of terrible moral dilemmas: how far would you go to save your child, and would you be prepared to take a life in order to save one? Although Mladen (Nebojsa Glogovac) and his wife, Marija (Natasa Ninkovic), are a relatively successful modern Belgrade couple, they don't have the spare cash necessary when they suddenly discover their beloved son needs an urgent operation to save his life. Completely desperate, they advertise for help in a newspaper, and get only one response: an offer of all the money, but only if Mladen will kill a man in return.
