A bus and a truck are moving towards each other along a two-way traffic highway on a rainy day.

This is absolutely one of the greatest Croatian movies and there's no doubt about it. It doesn't slave to any politics, any specific time, any commercialism and nothing of that kind.

We need more master pieces like this for 40 years now (except 'Tko pjeva zlo ne misli' and a few other films)
