Comic Sans is the fourth film project of Nevio Marasović shot on Vis and the first Croatian feature to be shot on the remote Croatian island of Jabuka.[1]


A successful graphic designer Alan Despot (Janko Popović Volarić), after trying in vain to renew a broken relationship with his girlfriend (Nataša Janjić) experiences an emotional breakdown. Persuaded by his concerned mother (Alma Prica) he goes to the island of Vis with his estranged and eccentric father (Zlatko Burić) to arrange a funeral for their deceased aunt. There he meets another ex-girlfriend (Inti Šraj) and her fiancé (Miha Rodman). New situations and circumstances help Alan to view his own life from a new perspective.
