Neko može otići toliko daleko da besno viče, mnogo puši, ima erotske vizije. Trojka je kadar-po-kadar projekat napravljen da napravi pokret u zamrznutom kadru.

But for those used to meet people, to be active and free, It’s definitely way too much togetherness. Routine and habit, without excitement, could drive people crazy, even lovers. Someone can go so far as to shouting out anger, smoking a lot, have erotic visions. Threesome is a stop-motion project made to make movement in the freeze frame time.
