This is a movie about a time just after Second World War, where parts of Yugoslavia (although the narrative is limited to the Republic of Croatia only) were depopulated, while other place had very scarse resources.
Therefore an initiative was taken to resettle the people from the land that was not suited for agriculture to land that was extremely suited for agriculture. And the resettlement was done by the means of a train that took whole villages from the coastal to inland regions - through the Republic's capital city.
It is a story of a whole community's journey towards a better future in the promissed land - Baranja (a very fertile lowlands along the Drava River), but at the same time, it's a story of individuals building up new lives in new ways, declining tradition (such as arranged marriages).
For me personally, though, it is a movie where I get to see my grandfather, as he was a musitian in the band that came to escort the villagers when their train started... my grandfather, who passed long before I was born, yet I still get to see walking along with his fellow musicians.
