Bane Bumbar is growing up in Stara Karaburma neighbourhood with his parents Sreta and Olja, his half-sister Seka Stajn (his mother's child form a previous marriage) and his maternal grandmother Elvira. His circle of friends includes characters such as Miki Rubiroza, Glupi Uke, Boca Combe, as well as his off-and-on girlfriend Goca. Occasionally narrated by Bane and other characters from a distance of 10-15 years, each one of 10 episodes depicts a different year from 1960 to 1969, inclusive, with Bane's various endeavours, concerns, education, love life, etc. taking center stage during each particular episode.

I think this is one of the best TV-series that I ever seen. Unfortunately, I think it will be interested only to people from ex-Yugoslavia. All episodes are connected in one story about life and growing of a Belgrade guy named Bane Zivkovic in period 1960-1970. The series has bitter-sweet taste, sometimes very funny but sometimes bitter and sad, just like real life is. There is also a very good movie (with very dark atmosphere) "Jagode u grlu" made 10 years after series, which terminates this story.
