An introvert Russian girl Nadia goes on holiday to Belgrade, inhabited by extrovert Serbians. She lives according to a plan, while the Belgraders live for joy. At first, Nadia is involved with the local guy Nesha, and then with his relaxed, semi-vagrant way of life. She takes an impulsive decision to give up her dull job and Moscow for the sake of love, freedom and Belgrade. Both these love and freedom will be a reality check for Nadia that is usually more difficult than some maythink.
