SYNOPSIS

On a harsh winter night in Belgrade, Serbia, an ex-con working as a taxi driver (Nebojsa Glogovac) has a series of bizarre encounters with tragic passengers from all walks of life, each a part of a patchwork of stories. Elsewhere, Ana (Mirjana Jokovic) survives a bus hijacking, only to find herself caught between a drug dealer and an angry boyfriend. And on the other side of town, passionate showman Boris (Nikola Ristanovski) struggles to entertain a tough crowd in a smoky cabaret.
