Plot
The setting is post-Milosevic Serbia. In the five separate episodes that share a slight narrative connection and a proclivity for the ridiculous, people who experience the very worst keep hoping for the very best. Each one is a fragment of a mosaic, pieced together by the character of the actor Lazar Ristovski, playing five different roles. The stories are inspired by Voltaire`s famous satirical novel Candide and its motto: Optimism is when one insists that everything is good when everything is bad.
