Synopsis

After being away for twenty years, famous writer Niko Boskovic comes back to his birthplace, the village Grahovo, visiting his younger brother Masan, the village priest, with whom he has a complicated relationship. Masan never forgave Niko for having to stay and take care of the property and their father. On the way to Grahovo, Niko accidentally kills a man with his car. Horrified and shocked he throws the body down the cliff and runs. Eventually he tells his brother the truth. Despite being a religious and moral man, Masan decides to help his brother in hiding the crime. In the meantime the peasants prepare a big party in Niko’s honour. Hiding the crime jointly opens the Pandora box of suppressed emotions. Suddenly roles are changing - the inferior Masan takes over the position of a leader. Niko witnesses the sacrifice his brother Masan is making for him, even now, 20 years apart. After the body has been buried, Niko sets Masan free and decides to report himself in.
