LEVI DEVŽEJ

SYNOPSIS

Short film from Slovenia, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2021

This is a story about tiny fragments.

A story of tiny fragments of childhood, small gifts, minute memories. A story about details, small dreams of a big heart, the simplicity of small loves.

This story is about a humble small-town boy in love with tiny pleasures. It speaks of people who value modesty; those who can appreciate the little things because they know that from little things, big things grow.

This story talks about THE VERY BEST of small pleasures.
