    • Synopsis
    • Early morning in Jerusalem, Nira goes to work. In London, Ahmad does the same, so does Ralf in Cologne and so does a priest in Prague. In Zagreb, Matija goes to work as well: or rather, he doesn’t, but he acts as if he does. An out-of-breath young man who had to run to catch the bus interrupts Ahmad’s routine bus journey. Schoolteacher Nira is interrupted by the rap song that her pupil wrote for her. The priest in Prague does not feel like singing today: instead he feels like (over)sleeping, and missing Mass. Someone falls asleep, and someone else – Ralf – falls in love. These five diverse characters are united by a common thread – they are all listening to urgent news reports about the disappearance of bees. In addition, they are all trying their best, each of them living in his or her own hive: in Zagreb, Jerusalem, London, Cologne and Prague.
