Plot
Six men, one woman (and her brother) gather with one goal – putting together a theatre play. This would probably be just anther ordinary story if the theatre company wasn't in fact a summit of antiheroes wondering lost in space in time, in a small town where even the Sun seems to be setting on the east. Lead by Sasa, a theatre director who has recently returned to his hometown, this company of socially unadjusted non-professional actors are starting a battle with their demons as well the prejudices in their surrounding as well as within themselves. They choose western as a dramaturgical base of their play. As they ride on stereotypes of the genre- the fight of good and evil, clash of civilisation and the wilderness - protagonists develop their life stories inevitably influencing and changing each other. However, as time passes the play no longer seems like an impossible mission, almost all of its participants start perceiving it as a metaphor of their own destinies and grasp it as an opportunity of a lifetime. For its actors the play becomes an opportunity to perhaps finish something as winners for the first time in their lives. On top of its clear structure of an easy comedy, lies the second face of the film Cowboyswhich is not running away from the critique of modern society. Using all the permitted and banned tools Cowboys” is a punch in the belly of hypocrisy of proper social manners and label arts.
