New Belgrade, a part of Belgrade designed to be a soc-realistic city of the future; concrete and melancholy. And everyday life.
Anica (36) (Anica Dobra) works as a bookie for a local small mob boss, Milutin (Fedja Stojanovic). Anica is tired and lonely. She thinks that her life isn't going anywhere. So, she has a plan. It is the day for monthly protection money. At the end of the day Anica will take all the collected money and with the rest from Milutin's vault, leave the country forever. Aside from her usual job, Anica spends the day in quiet goodbyes, secretly leaving her belongings to friends and taking small revenges, which lead to huge pleasures that she always longed for. Making sure that nobody notices, Anica organizes her perfect departure from her imperfect life. But life is unpredictable. The only thing Anica didn’t count on was - love. And love appears in an unexpected way. On that very day 15-years younger Stanislav (Vuk Kostic), Milutin's favorite employee, confesses his love to her. As the day goes by, the two meet in different situations and their love story strongly and passionately develops. At the end of the day, Anica will have to decide. Can you believe in love?
