Belgrade, 1993. Serbia is at war and its people suffer under international sanctions, facing constantly rising inflation. Marijana holds her family together while her husband perks up only in the presence of their small daughter, Minja, who injects some happiness into his otherwise grim life. Minja is celebrating her eighth birthday. Instead of a cocker spaniel of her own, there’s a neighbour’s three-legged dog for her to play with, and her birthday cake has been made with margarine instead of butter. In the living room, she and her classmates leap about dressed up as Mutant Ninja Turtles while the adults congregate in the kitchen…A drunken evening of unrestrained smoking and flirtation takes its toll.
