In this 77-minute "stream-of-consciousness" series of events, a young man runs away from home only to wander around town for awhile. A joke about marriage winds up taking people to a picnic in an area outside the city that is off-limits. First a fake wedding and then a real wedding occur, followed by three couples trying to outdo each other in verbal acuity. Meanwhile, some other young men arrive in a boat, and then start a quarrel which leads to a full-blown fist fight. Into the foray comes a game warden with some comical observations on modern Yugoslavian society - about as fragmented as this story in 1981.
