Follow Peter and Ingrid, a married couple in their late thirties, as their life in the suburbs of Klagenfurt takes an unexpected turn. Milan Ramšak Marković's 'Deževen Dan v Gurlitschu' ('Rainy Day in Gurlitsch') tackles the topic of identity crisis of the European middle class and talks about the dual nature of the traumas caused by loss. Is it more important to face the sense of loss itself or the fact that we never really had what we are grieving?
Peter and Ingrid live a comfortable life in the suburbs of Klagenfurt. Apart from worrying about crises such as a new war in Europe, increasing social inequality and the threat of climate change, their only real problem and life challenge so far has been their failed attempts to conceive a child.
We enter the story of Peter and Ingrid on the day when they discover that an expensive necklace has disappeared, which in addition to material value also has great emotional value, as Ingrid got it from her great-aunt, a well-known Austrian post-war feminist author. The feeling is all the worse because their necklaces were not stolen somewhere on the street, but the thief had access to their home.
Peter decides to find the culprit and the tracks lead him to a side of Klagenfurt that he didn't even know existed.
