This excellently told tale of revenge follows along the same lines as Francois Truffaut's 1967 film about an avenging woman, The Bride Wore Black, with the exception that the avenger(s) is a man and his son. The time is 1944, and Bajo (Bata Zivojinovic) is now able to begin the long hunt for the five fascists who tortured and killed his young wife a few years earlier. As he sets out with his son Vukole (Marko Ratic), conditions are still not safe since the Nazis are everywhere. The one-armed Bajo and his son definitely attract notice when they arrive in a new town, but their own danger does not deter Bajo from his vow of killing each of his wife's murderers. As the father-son duo travel through town and countryside, they meet a variety of people -- from a racecar driver to a nightclub singer -- whose humanity stands in sharp contrast to fascist cruelty seen time and again.
