WHATEVER HAPPENS, HAPPENS

The plot of the most-watched show in 2014 in Croatia – “Whatever Happens, Happens” is located in the picturesque village of Oštrovac, on the edge of a national park. The story revolves around the national park ranger Damir and a doctor Katarina, who comes to live in Oštrovac because of her grandfather’s will. Katarina’s grandfather Đuro, who spent most of his life as a recluse, left a million euros to his grandchildren under the condition that they spend a year in his old house. In case they fail to do so, the money shall go to the village.

As the village is on the brink of a disaster – the young are leaving, there is no future – this money could mean salvation. That is why the villagers will, at least in the beginning, try their best to “drive out” Đuro’s grandchildren and win the money. This is why Đuro’s grandchildren must combat both the village and the everyday existential issues – because the house has no power or water, which makes their time in the village, in a way, a fight for survival in conditions they aren’t used to.

This comedic show brings together top actors.

The story of “Outskirts City” takes place on the outskirts of Split. The illegal settlement is home to dust, mud, and cracked asphalt.

The houses were built with no order or logic. Satellite antennas and Croatian flags stick out from unfinished balconies, because construction is always on-going. The windows face a landfill above which seagulls wheel.
