- This raucous yet poignant documentary takes us into the lives of three Serbian brothers who are without wives in a remote mountain village of eight inhabitants, all of them single men. Their broken-down house with an earthen floor has no running water, a rickety outhouse, a living room whose walls are covered with Playboy-type pictures, and one bedroom shared by all three men. While Zoran, the eldest, dreams of marrying, he fails to convince a Serbian woman to share this primitive lifestyle. In nearby Albania there is a surplus of women, and Zoran is willing to pay a matchmaker for the opportunity to meet a group of unattached Albanian women. But at the rendezvous dinner it is obvious that these ladies are not the marrying kind. They certainly would not relish being partnered with a man who may really be looking for a housekeeper. And a further problem is that the scars left by the war in Kosovo makes it difficult for his youngest brother to consider welcoming a former 'enemy.' Zoran has the opportunity to extend the olive branch to the opponent. Will Zoran’s attempt be fruitful? Can he fulfill his dream and renew hope in his village?
