    • Synopsis
    • Lazar is disaffected and emotionally disconnected from the world around him. When his father left the family, he had to grow up to be resourceful and tough, and now in his mid twenties, he is involved in a smuggling ring of illegal aliens. His worldview starts to change when he falls in love with Katerina, an architecture student, who he randomly meets. She is able to awaken his stunted emotional life, and Lazar starts to see a different possibility for his future. The more involved he gets with Katerina, the more he tries to get out of his criminal environment. However, he will soon realize that it is not easy to simply break out from the criminal world that he is part of.
      Toni, Lazar’s brother in law, who lost his job due to the economic collapse of the country, desperately tries to find ways of making money. He would do anything to change the image of a loser, and to provide a better childhood, than the one he had, for his son Zlate.
