Synopsis:

Mahir and Žeraldina have been married for three years. They have no children. Mahir is convinced he is pregnant and starts throwing up. The film covers the time period of Mahir's shift as the night guard of a furniture store. A minimalist observation focuses on Mahir as he shares his moments of silent contemplation with Brizla, the night guard of the bathroom store next door. During their ritual pastime playing games, Brizla sees that Mahir is unwell, but it never occurs to him that he could be – pregnant. A neighbor, a wartime invalid, makes their night difficult. He activates an alarm, which brings the police to the complex. Although they are now mere night guards, the former soldiers are still in uniform – just watching furniture to protect it from them.The two friends end the shift with a morning coffee in a nearby bar. Mahir feels better and he is no longer vomiting. There is no need to feel sick, as he has just found out that it is Žeraldina who is two months pregnant.This is a story about telepathy between individuals, about a long-distance communication between Žeraldina and Mahir. He was pregnant and throwing up because she was, in fact, pregnant, without him knowing. NIGHTGUARDS is a film about how such invisible links become visible. The film does unravel the telepathic connection, but nevertheless it does remain. Even though we become aware of it, it becomes no less mysterious to us. On the contrary...
