Vjeko is a high-school teacher who lives in the center of Zagreb with his bedridden father a former officer in the Croatian fascist army during the Second World War. Vjeko enjoys late night walks during which he wanders through the empty city wearing makeup and female clothes. One night a group of young men beat him up. In the hospital, Maja, a nurse and his neighbor, recognizes him and takes care of him. In return, Vjeko agrees to help Maja’s husband, a police officer Ante, prepare for the exam in Croatian Constitution. Thus begins a story about three very different people who live in the same building and who are unexpectedly and against their will brought together and made dependent on each other.
