Plot
According to a new regulation, the small island village of Bura, on the Dalmatian island of Drž, can  only become a town if its population reaches 100. Unfortunately, in Bura there are exactly 99 inhabitants.  Things look set to change when the 100th villager is  born, until the oldest inhabitant dies on the same day.  Learning that a famous Italian fashion designer is  visiting the island, the locals decide to welcome him  in style, in order to win his affection and persuade him  to stay on the island permanently. Their plan works:  Giancarlo the designer loves the island and its people,  and would be happy to stay. However, some villagers  are scandalised by the designer and his companion,  the male model Teo, and comical misunderstandings  soon arise between the new arrivals and the villagers. The situation grows even more surreal when the President himself visits the island to escape from the pressures of life in the public gaze.

Director`s Statement

New regulations upgrade a small island settlement in Dalmatia into a city and temperamental citizens have a difficult time accepting the new city rules. Things get even more complicated with the arrival of an Italian fashion designer and his favorite male model. Through the climax of utter misunderstanding among the main protagonists, realistic and surrealistic elements of cinematographic narration, the story ends in a great flood of Biblical proportions, leaving the fashion designer, the model, three sheep, two goats and a dozen of hens, which happened to be on their ship, the only remaining inhabitants of the planet Earth.
