"In Croatia, just as in many parts of the world, people with intellectual or psycho social disabilities who also have physical disabilities are sent to institutions in huge numbers, leaving them completely socially excluded from their communities. They are confined to residential institutions that deprive them of any control over their lives. This happens for two main reasons: there is widespread and intense societal prejudice against them because of the way they look, and their physical environments do not accommodate their disabilities. NEW DAY follows two women leaving the institution, after many years they spent there, and moving in the universally designed apartment for people with disabilities - to start new life in the community, like everybody else..."

The short movie is set in Florence in the '70s. It opens with a tribute to the Sergio Leone’s movie “The good, the bad and the ugly”. All children who were born in Italy in the ’60 knew about this film. The Director’s quote from the famous “Triel” is the stylistic device to introduce the story of Sonia from age 11 to adulthood. The spectator gets in touch with the feelings of an entire generation through Sonia's life. That historical and political period in Italy is marked by terrorism and the movie describes the generational conflict of people at that time. Following utopian ideals, some Italian young people renounced their backgrounds and behaved violently. In the film, this behaviour is evoked as Sonia's emotional journey.
