Synopsis:

Miki Rudinsky is a disk jockey for a small provincial radio station who would like to move up the ladder to bigger and better positions. With that thought in mind, he organizes a gala event for the town sponsored by the local plum-processing factory. Unbeknownst to Miki, a big shot from Belgrade drops into town to help the factory get a major celebration underway - bringing VIPs and television coverage to the event. Sure enough, Miki's musical session and the factory's celebration get scheduled for the same day, causing Miki to resort to whatever means possible to get an audience. As one result of his underhanded efforts, he loses his job at the radio station. But life must go on, and he is willing to fight to the bitter end, no matter what.
