In parallel stories of different types of successes in life, one man has become rich after 15 years outside of his home in Vojvodina (a northern autonomous province of Yugoslavia) and returns to celebrate with everything he ever wanted but could not afford -- wine, women, parties and then more wine and women. The townsfolk might appreciate his ability to make money, but they are a lot less generous when it comes to how he is spending it, and they turn against him in the end. In the other story, another man's success has always been with women, all women, anywhere he can find them. This segment goes through several sexually explicit encounters in a glorified closet, a backroom, an open field -- with the young man's enthusiastic participation. Whether or not the townsfolk are equally aware of his clandestine exploits, he certainly meets with their approval when he reconsiders and decides to marry, devoting himself to the one woman he actually loves. Other individuals who come and go through the stories reinforce the theme of ethical sexual standards, though the movie's graphic sexual scenes may seem to many viewers to be at odds with its message.
