I Rest My Case (10:40′) follows old, retired actor who is lost in his memories. His grandaughter Katarina, student of theater directing is trying to persuade him to act in her graduation play, Ionesco’s Chairs, but Grandpa refuses. However, film follows parts of play with Gradpa in main role. Work on the play is recorded by Katarina’s boyfriend, Matija – the fourth character of the film, and the only one we do not see, although we are (sometimes) aware of his presence through the camera. After the play is finished, and Katarina and the actors are awarded with a big applause, is not quite sure what really happened.
