Since its premiere at the 2022 Locarno Film Festival, Safe Place has won sixteen awards, including Best Film in Sarajevo. It was later selected as Croatia's entry at the Academy Awards. In his first feature film, director Juraj Lerotić tells a personal story inspired by his experiences.


Damir has tried to commit suicide, and his brother Bruno feels helpless and distraught after saving him. Bruno agrees to take his brother to a 'safe place' with his mother. A place where Damir will not be alone, where they can keep an eye on him. They set off from Zagreb for the seaside resort of Split, where they spent their childhood. This is more than a nostalgic trip; it's also an escape from the bureaucracy of the healthcare system, which has failed to help Damir. But is it possible to change someone and give them the strength to continue? Safe Place is an awe-inspiring drama about the experiences of a mother and her two sons over the course of 24 hours. Lerotić wrote, directed and played the leading role in this film.
