    • Synopsis
    • Ruslana (Nina Nizheradze), a middle-aged Ukrainian, lives a lonely life in Munich. Just when she fails her German exam yet again and a broken pipe in her self-made “Samogon”distillery floods her modest home, her luck changes when her serbian neighbour Vladan (Karl Markovics), comes to her rescue and overcomes her language barrier with his Slavic soul. Having given up his boxing career to start a new living in Germany for the sake of his ex-wife, he now has been left with nothing after their divorce.
      Bogdan (Ivan Dobronravov), Ruslana’s son, has been working as a driver for spoiled Ukrainian pop-singer Maria (Viktoria Varley) in Kiev. Both rely on her rich patron Jora (Aleksej Gorbunov). Bogdan is sick of them both, throws in his job and leaves Maria stuck in a traffic jam. He goes for a last drink with his friends before leaving for his mother. Drunk and jealous he turns back at the station and passes Maria at the concert venue. After a big argument, he accompanies her home. They spend the night together, but the next morning Marias patron stands in front of the door.
      Zoran (Vuc Kostic), Vladan’s son, could never forgive his parents for their divorce. He has returned to Belgrade, where, together with his girlfriend Aida (Marija Scarcic), he lives a simple but satisfying life. When he witnesses local mafia pressing “farewell” money, he meets Jelena (Lea Mornar), the indecisive but loveable wife of the austrian restaurant owner Günther (Georg Friedrich). But Jelena intends to leave her homeland the next day, forever. This night, Zoran succeeds in opening her eyes to a new Belgrade - a city full of hopes and dreams.
