The documentary series Tales from the draft aims to present events from the past of Slovenian history in a fresh and modern way - far from dry textbook historiography, but with a great deal of attention to historical facts. The series fascinatingly introduces us to those forgotten events and people who made us and our cities what we are today.

Each of the six episodes will tell incredible stories that many of us have already forgotten, while perhaps some of us never knew about them. Do you know the story about the young Emil Adamič and Rudolf Lundro, who were shot for no reason on the steps of the Ljubljana market? Did you know the story behind the sweet Šumi candies and that Josipina Šumi, one of the first women who took over the company in the 19th century, is responsible for their existence?

Through the interviews of historians/narrators, the event unfolds 'live' in front of us, and our interlocutors (historians) present it as if they were its actors themselves. The visual style of the animation consists of a collage of real archival materials with additional modern elements.
