SYNOPSIS

Equal parts absurdly comic and very serious satire of the Balkan mentality, which is undergoing a slow but steady transition. Development is Nikola Vučinić’s graduation film, set in a small community with ageing population. When an amusement park opens in town, a group of patients from a psychiatric institution find themselves at the inauguration. What follows is a bizarre sequence of events in which the mayor is replaced by a mentally ill patient, who will perform the task with equal success.
