At the time of this film's release, Lazar Ristovski was the most popular Yugoslavian actor on stage as well as on screen, having had recently played Blacky in Underground and the boxer in Bare Baruta. He was the director, producer, screenwriter, and lead actor of this first film about a tender-hearted bachelor who lives a happy life until he learns that his mother has just died. He takes a steam train and returns to his native village. During his journey, he mixes present time and past memories, meets beautiful creatures as well as horrid ones, and experiences picaresque life and death adventures. The film was screened in the International Critics' Week of the 1999 Cannes Film Festival.
