Much to the relief of his harassed parents, troubled Andrej has just been sent to youth detention. The newbie on the block, he struggles to find his place among the other inmates whilst also repressing his feelings for the handsome Željko, who starts using Andrej’s attraction to his advantage. As the cascade of violence, drugs and petty crime within the detention centre intensifies, Andrej finds himself in a precarious and dangerous situation.
This hard-hitting emotional portrayal of teenage angst and hyper masculinity is centred on the powerful performances from charismatic newcomers Matej Zemljic and Timon Šturbej who imbue every scene with a palpable sense of foreboding. Consequences takes an unflinching look at the raw impulses of adolescence and the insecurity that lies beneath.
