In the tumultuous 1950's, as Yugoslavia resists the pressures of Stalinism, a young boy narrates the story of his family's troubled world. Mesha (Miki Manojlovic), a minor party official in Yugoslavia has been sent away to the mines for fooling around with a voluptuous communist party official. The drama unfolds through the eyes of Mesha's six-year-old naive son, Malik, who thinks Papa is away on business. An acclaimed political satire by director Emir Kusturica.
