29415. Ile and Žan amidst a vivid discussion about what happened in Žan's elementary school during a photography darkroom practice, where Žan, his schoolmate Buco, the teacher (completely innocent and unsuspecting) as well as the teacher's daughter, also a schoolmate of Žan and Buco, were present; off-the-record activity, in the darkest corner of faintly-lit darkroom involved deep breathing.
