Mija lives with her teenage grandson in a small dormitory town on the Han River. She is a smart dresser who likes to wear hats decorated with flowers and fashionable outfits, but she's also an unpredictable character with an inquisitive mind. By chance, she takes a "poetry" class at a neighbourhood culture centre and is instructed to write a poem. Her quest for poetic inspiration begins with observing the everyday life she has always ignored. Suddenly, Milo is filled with a new energy making her feel like a little girl discovering things for the first time in her life. But when she has to face a reality harsh beyond her imagination, she realises that perhaps life is not as beautiful as she thought?
Barney’s Version
Richard J. Lewis

Barney Panofsky is a seemingly ordinary man who lives an extraordinary life: there is his first wife, Clara, a flame-haired, flagrantly unfaithful free sprit with whom Barney briefly lives in Rome. The "Second Mrs. P.," is a wealthy Jewish Princess who shops and talks incessantly, barely noticing that Barney is not listening. And it is at their lavish wedding that Barney meets...
Barney Panofsky is a seemingly ordinary man who lives an extraordinary life: there is his first wife, Clara, a flame-haired, flagrantly unfaithful free sprit with whom Barney briefly lives in Rome. The "Second Mrs. P.," is a wealthy Jewish Princess who shops and talks incessantly, barely noticing that Barney is not listening. And it is at their lavish wedding that Barney meets, and starts pursuing, Miriam, his third wife, the mother of his two children, and his true love. With his father, Izzy as his sidekick, Barney takes us through the many highs, and a few too many lows, of his long and colourful life. Not only does Barney turn out to be a true romantic, he is also capable of all kinds of sneaky acts of gallantry, generosity, and goodness when we - and he - least expect it.

Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1991. The communists have fallen from power and Divko Buntic returns to the small town where he grew up to reclaim his family home. After a 20-year exile in Germany, Divko arrives in his flashy red Mercedes with sexy young girlfriend Azra, lucky black cat Bonny and a pocketful of Deutschmarks. Divko uses his money and connections to forcefully evict estranged wife Lucija, but he tries to reunite with 20-year-old son Martin. When Divko's beloved cat Bonny disappears, the whole town joins in a frantic search to get the cash reward. The daily hunt for the missing cat strains Divko's fragile relationship with Azra and opens up an unexpected but strong attraction between Azra and Martin. Busy fretting over everyday concerns, most of the townsfolk seem to disregard the rumbling political unrest: Croatia has seceded, all Yugoslavs are being forced to take sides, and the Serbs begin bombing Dubrovnik.
