Set in a rural area of Belgrade. Tsane, a young boy, has to complete his dying grandfather’s wish: to sell the cow, buy an icon and bring back a wife. During this journey Tsane meets the city buzz and his step brothers and is forced to fight a criminal boss in order to rescue his future wife from prostitution. Meanwhile the dying grandfather has found love with the only neighbor in the village – Bossa.

"Another beautiful example of Kusturica’s style! The sacred meets the profane, vulgarity teams up with affectation…That’s almost the definition of surrealism."
Sébastien Mauge
