Synopsis:

Set at a turning point in Yugoslav history, after the death of Josip Broz Tito, this film follows the adventures of the retired Yugoslav army warrant officer Budimir Buda Sarenac and his friend, a retired intelligence officer, as they search for a thieving magpie. One morning, the annoying bird steals a golden watch Buda had received from the army for 40 years of honorable service.  Unfortunately, the bird is not the only thief in Buda’s life and he soon loses faith in everything he believed in and in the system he had faithfully served.
