    • Synopsis
    • Convinced that he is behaving in a righteous
      manner, because “even the Pope is against the use
      of condoms”, Don Fabijan, a Catholic priest in a
      small town on a Dalmatian island, starts puncturing
      condoms. He then persuades Peter, a god-fearing
      newsstand owner, to sell them at his newspaper
      kiosk. Don Fabijan and Peter soon join forces with
      Marin, a pious pharmacist, who starts secretly
      replacing contraceptive pills with vitamin pills in his
      pharmacy. The three conspirators practically abolish
      contraception on the island and, as the number of
      unwanted pregnancies continues to rise, Don Fabijan
      does all he can to persuade the couples to get
      married in a proper Christian fashion – even against
      their will. Soon, however, the actions of the trio start
      influencing the lives of the islanders, who are no
      longer the masters of their own fate.
