The idea just was there. Like it happens with ideas, with good and with bad ones. Just a plain sentence: I bet you cannot kill a human being.

On a Sunday like any other Sunday in 1996, actually an ordinary Sunday in a small town, Adam and Tommek meet their friends at the square in their neighborhood. But this Sunday will end differently than any other. Out of their boredom comes a bet. The stakes? A human life.

Seven Days Sunday is a feature film based on true facts. A film telling the story of two 16-year-old boys who commit a murder on an innocent human being.
