Relja’s (16) grandmother has died. His mother, Olga (46), a cold and controlling woman, had such a bad relationship with her so refuses to organise the funeral. Relja is not too bothered about it either. When he delivers the sad news to Ana (16), the girl he is desperately in love with, she feels struck by his loss and for the first time shows affection towards him. Relja realises there might be a way to turn the tragedy into an opportunity, and engages in organising the funeral secretly and against his mother’s will. Cleverly and unscrupulously, Relja manoeuvres between love and death.
