Graduates - Freedom Is Not for Free / BONUS Filip

Audio Tracks

A film about the struggle of young people, fresh university graduates, who have to face reality and conform to the society and its system. They often have to accept the tough conditions which go against their own interests and wishes. Their ideals and dreams clash with the global financial crisis, they are uncertain in their interaction with the market rules, and they feel they are living in an unjust country. We are free, but to what extent are we able to manage our own destiny and fight for our own existence?
