Dragana, a bride-to-be who says she will not go through with it, just two days before the wedding – even though everything is ready and everyone knows about it. Leso, the merciless patriarch of the family of the groom, has a suggestion for the rebellious bride: go through with the bloody wedding, act it out, and then go wherever you want the next day. She agrees. However, the offended groom still hopes she will stay. The traditional wedding includes a series of absurd events, steeped in alcohol, gunfire and dynamite, which will bring the worst of the characters’ personal anxieties into play.
