Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Back from the war, Croatian-born Sergije (Slavko Stimac) and Bosnian buddy Nikola (Srdjan Todorovic) rent beach chairs in Belgrade to Sava Lake sunbathers. Unable to locate his missing family, Sergije is barely surviving during the economic crisis. Sergije loves attractive Sonja (Mirjana Jokovic), who has been forced into prostitution to support her family, but their love appears doomed. This $1.7 million drama, Yugoslavia's entry for the foreign-language Academy Award, won the country's national film prize. Shown at 1997 film festivals in Palm Springs and Macedonia.
