A group of Belgrade theatre actors are sent on a mission to war-torn Bosnia to perform their best pieces for soldiers fighting on the front. Belgrade music and fashion scene of the 90s is very well depicted in this lighthearted comedy.

The way the film was made also represents our resistance to political correctness, to fascism. Horror isn't just about what scares you, it can also be about what haunts and repulses and disturbs you. I found it sad more than anything.
It also talks about the state of Serbia as a 'failed state' through a pornographic allegory which I guess is extremely questionable and probably a reach made by my overtly analytical mind perhaps to draw attention to Serbia and make the audience question and explore it's current state. In that strange relationship of dying friendship and rivalry they try to get ahead of each other. Snapping, an enraged Miloš lunges at Vukmir and repeatedly smashes his head against the floor, initiating a brawl during which Marija bites off a piece of Marko's neck, then bludgeons him to death with a sculpture.

Aware of his financial problems, Layla introduces Milos to Vukmir - a mysterious, menacing and politically powerful figure in the pornographic business. Their lives seem to temporarily stop for the duration of this soccer game, which emphasizes the despondent state they are in, with no sense of purpose in life; Avaks Lazar Strugar and Hibrid Miodrag Fišeković are two idlers who drink bear and smoke weed all day long on top of their building, and only add to the whole sense of hopelessness.
