Klemen (15) adores his brother Peter (18) who is also his idol and best friend. The boys, raised by a single mother, are growing up in a small countryside town, spending their days on the tennis court, training to be champions. When Peter falls in love with the beautiful Sonja, Klemen’s world starts disintegrating. He feels anger towards his brother’s voluptuous girlfriend who is bringing radical change into their life, while at the same time being hopelessly drawn to her feminine sensuality. DON’T FORGET TO BREATHE is an atmospheric and intimate coming of age drama about the fragility of teenage period, jealousy, erotics and the inevitable process of accepting that the world is changing.

“With his film DON’T FORGET TO BREATHE, Martin Turk reaches into the densely populated genre territory, and by directing it he has created one of the most outstanding recent Slovenian films.” (www.vecer.com)
