This lightly romantic drama conceals a slight political edge as it presents the story of a young Yugoslavian woman stuck in Hungary on New Year's Eve. The tale begins on New Year's Day, 1993 where Vesna has just spent the night in a Budapest apartment with Arpad. Later as she heads back via train to Vienna she is arrested at the Austrian border. It seems her Yugoslav passport is no longer valid. The story jumps back to the night before as she arrived in Budapest and met a loud Russian. After meeting him she ended up in bed with Arpad, the bar pianist.
