On a remote island along Croatia's Adriatic coast, 17-year-old Julija spends her days diving for eel with her domineering father Ante and watching other teens party on a nearby yacht. Julija bristles at Ante's heavy handed cruelty and resents her mother Nela's passivity. She longs for independence, but is unsure how to achieve it, until the arrival of the rich and mysterious Javier seems to offer a way out. Javier is considering buying Ante's land to build a resort, which would allow the family to escape their island isolation for the city. Once Ante's employer and Nela's lover, Javier, flirts shamelessly with Nela and Julija, this sets off a subtle battle of hypermasculine one-upmanship that pushes Ante to humiliate and control Julija even more. Flattered by Javier's praise and stories of traveling the world, Julija sees him as the solution to all her problems. But does his affection portend freedom or something more sinister? Winner of the Caméra d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and Executive Produced by Martin Scorsese, Murina is equal parts fiery feminist outcry and stirring coming-of-age drama.
