A love story about a married couple with differing political views.

This film follows the everyday life of a married couple Zijad (56) and Zineta Šehović (44). He is an engineer, one of the first private gas pump owners. Zineta is a teacher who graduated in political sciences. They live a harmonious coexistence with their three grown-up children. Zijad is a Social Democratic Party activist, and his wife Zineta a Party of Democratic Action activist. The difference in their political views does not affect their unconditional love, parenting or relationships with neighbours. They are unrelentingly in love and show a different dimension of politics. Zineta and Zijad’s relationship is a metaphor of political coexistence which, unfortunately, is not the image of today’s Bosnia.
