Synopsis:


Piksi, a former soccer player and now owner of a bar, falls in love with Una, 19-year-old kid who, during the celebration of New Year’s Eve, is just toying with him. After this party came to an end, we see that Pikis and Una do not speak the same language. They don’t belong to the same world. As for Una, it was just plain good fun in a club, for Piksi it was something else, a beginning of a long relationship that could easily end with marriage. When these worlds collide, all close around them will die…

Dragana, Una’s closest friend, spends her entire day in preparation for a romantic dinner to which she was invited by Ljubo, a young man whom she recently met. When at the door, instead of a charming prince, she finds a semi-naked pervert and instead of romantic dinner she gets two glasses of brandy, all her dreams are scattered, and what was supposed to be the most beautiful New Year’s Eve, turns into a night of violent sex and a rape. Dragana, completely destroyed, sneaks out of the apartment and Ljubo, who turned out to be a corrupted cop who lives with his parents, goes into Piksi’s bar just to take another bribe.

Sina, a local punk, and Ljubica, former waitress, they want to leave this town and start a new life in a new place in the new year, together. Can love survive in a place where there is no love? Can the two of them go over all these obstacles they are facing and escape from there? Things are not evolving that smoothly. Sina is armed and determined. He has to draw the money needed for their escape, from Piksi. He enters the bar and accidentally kills Ljubo who had just come in from his “meeting“with Dragana.

Nothing is going its course and all the bright lights are gradually extinguished to New Year lights…
