During the war in Kosovo, Maca loses her infant child in a tragic accident. Eleven years later she is living in Belgrade, struggling to make ends meet, working as a bar singer in a shabby suburban banquet hall. The owner of the hall is her dead child’s Godfather, Bole. Bole came from Kosovo, too, but he managed to find his way in the big city and he is a “big boss” now. Maca’s ex-husband Jovan fought in the war and now lives as a novice in a monastery. Although he lives in solitude, he feels that he has a calling to fulfill. Therefore he leaves the monastery in order to return and live among people again.
