    • Synopsis
    • A group of people sets off for Belgrade by a dilapidated bus of the firm: “Krstic and Son”. Each of the passengers has pressing reasons to reach the capital as soon as possible. It is the spring of 1941, the day of the eve of the fascist attack on Yugoslavia. The bus leaves a desert and isolated place. The trip drags and lasts for 24 hours due to some unpredictable and strange events, even hundred kilometres far from Belgrade. On the way, under the impressions of the war in Europe, the passengers quarrel and get into conflicts. The atmosphere of a future catastrophy hangs in the air, but more as a presentiment rather then an over prediction. The old “wreck” of a bus, with its unusual and crazy passengers, is a comic picture of a decaying epoch, the end of a world that is to disappear in flames and explosions. Intolerance, present from the very beginning of the trip, turns into an open violence the victims of which are two Gipsy musicians. In is not a pure chance: bombs start to fall precisely at that moment.
