Slovenka (A Call Girl), director Damjan Kozole's eighth film, features the story of Alexandra, a 23-year-old student of English language, whose secret source of income is prostitution. Alexandra has plans for her life, but life is not as easy as she has expected.

Slovenka features Silence's very first feature film soundtrack. Kozole decided to use the acoustic version of Runalong - the last track from Silence's fourth album, Vain, a Tribute to a Ghost - as the movie's main theme. All the compositions featured in the movie are therefore adaptations or permutations of Runalong.

The music, lyrical and ethereal, provides a glance beneath Alexandra's thick-skinned appearance. The soundtrack features two instruments; the piano (interpreted by Hladnik) and the acoustic guitar (interpreted by Katja Porovne Silic). In order to achieve a distinctive sound, Silence amplified parts of the instruments that are usually disregarded, despite the interesting sounds they produce. In The Procurers, for instance, the sound of the piano is considerably quieter than the sound of Hladnik's foot pressing the piano's sustain pedal.

The soundtrack was recorded and produced in Silence's private production facility, the Daily Girl studio. The world premiere of Slovenka took place at the Sarajevo Film Festival in August 2009.
