"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."
-- Federico Fellini

REST IN PEACE marks the first Croatian TV series to air in the U.K., and subsequently the U.S. When the oldest prison in Croatia is ordered to be demolished, since it does not adhere to the newly introduced EU regulations, journalist Lucia Car is sent to cover the story. When she comes across a graveyard for the unclaimed bodies of deceased inmates, she knows there is more to be uncovered about this centuries-old institution.  Enlisting the help of retired prison guard Martin Strugar, who carries many prison secrets as well as some of his own, the rebellious and determined Lucia puts herself and those close to her in grave danger in pursuit of the story. In her stubborn belief that revealing these shocking discoveries will liberate their stalled society from the burdens of the past, Lucia will painfully discover that for the dead to rest in peace, the living must pay a high price.  Entertainmentfocus.com hailed “Judita Frankovic is excellent in the lead role…another Walter goodie!”

Croatian with English subtitles.
