Synopsis New Belgrade, a part of Belgrade designed to be a soc-realistic city of the future. Concrete and melancholy. And everyday life. Anica, in her late thirties, unsatisfied with her life, decides to steal a significant amount of money and leave the country for good. The film follows her through that fateful day, from the morning untill the late night hours. Anica spends the day saying quiet goodbyes, secretly leaving her belongings to friends and taking small revenges, which leads to huge pleasures that she always longed for. From these events a puzzle could be pieced that shows the whole picture of her life. Everything would go according to plan if only Stanislav, a guy ten years younger than her, had not declared his love to her. And now she starts wondering ? what if he is the love of her life?
