Black comedy and ensemble film about modern Belgrade, where several people's paths cross on the same day that several popular Serbian tennis players play a match in an important international tournament. The moral vacuum that arose after the devastating conflicts in the area at the end of the past century can be seen in the selfish behaviour of the characters. A young girl tries her best to get her hands on new tennis equipment, a taxi driver blames the rest of the world for not being able to get on in life, a rich adolescent discovers that love is not for sale. Driven by instincts, fears and obsessions, the characters discover that reality will not fit in with their desires.
Vladimir Paskaljevic, the son of Goran Paskaljevic, also a film director, constructs his debut film around the question of whether moral voids are the cause or result of nationalist wars.
