Vida and Bane, a married couple, has been living in Stockholm for quite a time. They have successful careers, enough money for decent living and a dog, but no children. Vida suspects that Bane has a mistress in Belgrade, but doesn’t mention it. They visit Serbia for holidays, where in the familiar setting, the well-rehearsed choreography, which was so many times repeated in their gastarbeiter lives, is played. This Easter, however, the wall of silence collapses.

We are witnessing the last days of their relationship, a marriage worn out, people whose life together has come to an end. They did not want this ending and they are coping with it the best way they could – trying to live as before, walking on the familiar, well-beaten paths. We are witnessing the annihilation of the world, a shared micro-cosmos wherefrom these two persons have to continue walking in opposite direction.
