When 20-something Sasha's boyfriend has a car accident, his sister comes to visit and rocks her world. But Sasha's controlling parents have problems of their own, and she can't figure out whether she should come out to them, let alone to the boyfriend - and besides, she may not be gay. Soap-operatic and beautifully shot, this is one of the first gay-themed films to come out of Serbia.
