An erotic photographer discovers hidden doorways in the city of Zagreb while shooting undressed girls.

An artist lies naked and covered with fish in her performance in a window display. Her third husband, whom she met at a cemetery (just like her first husband) applies nail polish for her. Two actors (real life couple) perform a rape scene. Chinese tourists discover last century’s whorehouses in Zagreb while a singer yearns for the ‘right one’. Who is Gabriel and how does he fulfill wishes to those that open their hearts?
