  • Echo of a Dead Tongue

    by Stefan Sofronijevic
    How far would a man go in order to make it to the top?

Through a dynamic story and a strong dialogue, characters are brought to life. Two stories that flow in parallel, mutually intertwined, yet unbelievably different. If you have the stomach for the worst (also the best) in people, welcome to the dark side.
