SYNOPSIS:

Pero, the protagonist of the film, is an intelligent man in his mid-thirties. He uses his considerable talent as a writer for funeral speeches. These are not mere eulogies for the deceased, since Pero consciously and unconsciously entwines his own perception of the course of events and his life philosophy within them. He lives in a family house with his sisters Vilma and Ida, his father and his nephew Johnny. Pero's neighbor Shooki, Džoni's father Jagger and Renata, Pero's great love also frequently cross his path.
