A story about a colorful married couple from Medulin, whose different views on life disrupt their idyll.

Milan and Silvana live in Medulin, a small coastal town in Croatia. Milan breeds cows on the nearby island of Finera, grooming them on a daily basis, as many did before him. But Silvana wants much more and keeps complaining that Milan should pay more attention to their house and possibly rent it to tourists. However, a dramatic event in Milan’s life will clearly show that the times have changed and that they are not getting any younger. Film was screened at more than fifteen national and international film festivals.
