The initial idea was simple: find the games played by men around the world. Whether they be loud games, body games, games that look flat-out silly, all serve as bubbles for men of all ages to seal themselves in. But then director Matjaž Ivanišin discovered that games are a very serious matter. In the second half of the film, he breaks the barrier between artist and audience and takes us in with him as he ponders what games really are and what emotional, social and gender roles they play in our lives. The answers he finds are often funny, sometimes erotic, and always thought-provoking.
