A personal summer travelogue through non-personal memories, collective personal ideals, and personal collective collectives. An old, once-upon-a-time country, reborn and undone in the blink of an eye. A youthful, romantic drive through bleak squares, forgotten roads, and reconstructed dreams. A poem.

“On (your) road made of flowers and sun, in a garden of gentle lovers, an eternal song remains …” In the life of a man who cherishes the sun, the garden and this song. On the banks of a river. The Danube. A song from the 1970s … from 1973.

This remarkable debut by a young Serbian talent ponders the biggest possible burdens that we humans have to bear, how to confront and conquer one’s inner fears, resistance and struggles. Done with beauty and simplicity, the film creates an atmosphere of contemplation and self-awareness. From script to music the work of one man.

The entertaining yet serious story of three colourful characters who play an unusual instrument ¬– a tree leaf. Blowing on it they make music, practice very hard, and compete with each other with an amazing passion for this old fashioned self-taught skill. A former private detective who used to work in Germany, a music teacher and amateur inventor as well as a peasant from a Serbian village who knows how to pick the leaves that produce the best sound – they all share the same talent. It’s interesting that the film has been invited to music film festivals as well as to programmes that show social documentaries. Well directed, with strong characters and a great sense of subtle humour.
