Written by the director with Elma Tataragič, the 2019 Golden Bear candidate's screenplay is set in Stip, a small town in Macedonia. Every year in January, the parish priest throws a wooden cross into the river and hundreds of men dive in to catch it. Happiness and prosperity are guaranteed to those who succeed. But this time, Petrunya (Zorica Nusheva) decides to dive into the water on a whim and manages to grab the cross before anyone else. Her competitors are furious – how dare a woman take part in their ritual? All hell breaks loose, but Petrunya stands her ground. She won the cross fair and square and she will not give it up. Her competitors are furious that a woman dared to participate in the ritual. War is declared but Petrunija holds out: she won her cross, and she will not surrender it...

The film, which is due to be screened on Sunday, 10 February was produced by Labina Mitevska (who is also in the cast) for the Macedonian company Sisters and Brothers Mitevski and was co-produced by Belgium (Entre Chien et Loup), Slovenia (Vertigo), Croatia (Spiritus Movens Production) and France (Deuxième Ligne Films et EZ Films), with support from Eurimages.
