Each day, Risto and Safet, two local mortuary workers, bet on the number of corpses they will receive. On this particular day, Risto bets on less than four and Safet on four or more corpses. There is less than half an hour left to the end of the betting period, and there is only one body in the mortuary; Ruzdija Kucuk, a local 'post war" wheeler-dealer. As there is no railroad traffic in Bosnia since the war broke out, he transports passengers with a tractor received as humanitarian aid from the Dutch government. Unfortunately, as the fields are full of mines, he can't use the tractor for its original purpose, so he has transformed it into a locomotive.
