The film is an urban satire, made in “road movie” style. All the characters are particular and “weird”. The heroine is twenty-year-old Vanja – a very beautiful girl who likes classical comic books. She uses her intelligence and sexual attractiveness as jokers that will save her from her desperate life.
She works in a provincial factory, lives with her parents and relatives in a humble, shabby house. Vanja hasn’t received her paycheck in months and she loses it, leaves her job and her home, takes her backpack and hitchhikes to Zagreb.
It’s the beginning of her adventure full of bizarre accidental encounters and drivers, none of which are indifferent to Vanja’s beauty, youth and self-confidence.
Her cousin Srđan – a frustrated part-timer in a sports magazine – will get an interview with a promising football player; a rich and arrogant football manager Ivan will lose €50,000; aspiring university professor Feđa Bartolović, ready to help his attractive female students who cannot cope with material, will be ashamed and humiliated; blasé Greta will be forced to confront her demons and a lonely twelve-year-old boy will find a friend.
