Matko is a small-time hustler who lives and does business along the Danube with his 17-year-old son Zare. After a routine business deal runs awry, Matko finds himself in considerable debt to a much more successful gangster--Dadan. But there is something that Dadan wants more than money: someone to marry his sister, Afrodita. A deal is struck: Zare and Afrodita will be wed. Yet nothing is ever as simple as it seems, for Zare's heart already belongs to Ida, and he is far from the man of Afrodita's dreams. All films in the Romani Film Series have English subtitles.
