SYNOPSIS:

UIn a dying town in Serbia, an old communist-era monument is removed from the Square. Marko, daydreamer, is on the verge of divorce from the love of his life, Ljubinka. She is disappointed in him and the life in Serbian small-town. Out of despair, Marko comes up with the idea to replace the communist-era statue with a monument to Michael Jackson in order to save his dying town and seduce his wife again. Marko convinces his close friends to help him. But the town’s mayor has his own plans and uses right-wing group “Clean Serbia” to crash Marko’s dream.

Desperate, Marko falsifies Michael Jackson’s letter and convinces the mayor and everybody else that Jackson will come to the monument’s unveiling. The town is now revitalised and its citizens full of hope while Marko regains the love of his wife. On the big day, the insane turn of events unexpectedly leads to the fulfilment of Marko’s plan, but in an absurd and darkly ironic fashion.
