Bread and Milk
Description: Ivan is dismissed from his alcoholism treatment programme a day early. He returns home to his compassionate wife Sonja who tries to help him return to a normal routine. The next morning, as she leaves for work, Sonja sends Ivan to the store to get bread and milk. On the way, he runs into his old friend Armando. While they chat in a local bar, Armando tells Ivan that he once spent a night with Sonja before she married Ivan. Greatly disturbed by this story, Ivan temporarily forgets himself and downs a brandy without thinking. This act precipitates the tragic. Ivan's various relationships are suddenly thrown into doubt and jeopardy, including that with his 16-year-old son Robi. While they are evidently fond of each other, Ivan's years of hard drinking and his current lapse makes it difficult for him to express his feelings to his son and harder still for Robi to trust his father. Ultimately, father and son's mutual love compels them to express it in the most painful, bittersweet way imaginable.
