Storyline

After spending 13 years in prison, forty-year-old Djuka Begovic returns to his home-village in Slavonia. He promises to his mother that he will begin a new and honest life. He finds new meaning in taking care of his daughter Smilja. He tries to chase away destructive thoughts that threaten to overwhelm him by throwing himself into hard work. However, everything around him reminds him of his past and his family's tragic destiny. His family was wealthy at the beginning of the twentieth century, but was destroyed by the capitalist powers that took over the villages and broke the traditional family cooperatives. Djuka's personal life was marked by constant conflicts with his father. Written by nixona

It's sometimes rediculous what happens in our cinema. Where has gone all the money for this film? OK, so it was fault of ex-government and ex-ministry of culture. But, there is no point to make any spectacles after 'Gone with the wind'
