Vera, a private detective retired to the village where she grew up as shepherdess, and Pera, the know-it-all peasant of many esoteric skills, are the last remaining leaf-players - both in the autumns of their lives, still strongly blowing into leaves. Josip is an amateur inventor set out to decode the obscure artistry of leaf-playing. "Unplugged" is an existential allegory about music played on tree leaves, humorously rattling between the most primitive of instruments and the most universal escapism of music. Music has rarely been so offbeat. "Unplugged" was selected to more than 70 festivals (among them Visions Du Réel, Hot Docs, CPH:DOX, Dok Leipzig, FIDMarseille, Raindance, and so on) where it won 10 awards.
