Story of a young delinquent (played by the brilliant Dragan Nikolić) who transforms from the typical outsider into the most powerful Belgrade kingpin. This daring, fierce story about crime, drugs, and the deadly grip of the Serbian secret police seemed shocking at the time the film was made, but has since unfortunately moved away from fiction and towards reality. The film exudes the authentic anarchy of Belgrade, mocking Tito’s speeches, provincialism, as well as film and other conventions.
