Milco Mancevski`s latest movie could hardly be placed in any movie genre, and was best described by the director himself when he said that it is “a cheeky film”. Two love triangles in one nighbourhood. The film is set in modern Skoplje, in a place where a new glass building is towering over a dilapidated house, thus shamelessly bringing closer two different worlds. A rich married couple without kids, who come up with (and pay for) a way to expand their family, lives in the new building. Another married couple lives in an old, small house, seemingly without love. The road leads both couples towards the third person. Apart from looking at each other`s windows and backyards, there is nothing significant that connects people from these two stories – until finally fate (or the director) connects them in a very bizarre way.
