Synopsis

After being away for twenty years, famous writer Niko Bošković comes back to his birthplace, the village Grahovo, visiting his younger brother Mašan, the village priest, with whom he has a complicated relationship. Mašan 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, Mašan 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 Mašan takes over the position of a leader. Niko witnesses the sacrifice his brother Mašan is making for him, even now, 20 years apart. After the body has been buried, Niko sets Mašan free and decides to report himself in.
