'Circles' is a film about consequences of a heroic act. Does heroism make sense and does it encourage us to do more good deeds? Does a good deed spread around like circles on the surface of water when we cast a stone in it? It is a modern tale about a heroic act and its positive consequences. It contains three parallel stories about characters who, due to events from their past, are urged to make decisions that will change their lives. Nebojša, who witnessed the incident in which his best friend was killed, faces his friend's killer. Haris, who owes his life to a hero who sacrificed his life to save him, pays the debt by risking everything and helping a woman in danger. The son of one of the killers gradually finds a way to leave the tragic past behind.
