Čamčatka is a story taken from a special tourist agent who, in the 1970’s, is in search of a tourist resort in the former Yugoslavia, far from urban and social development, which would be suitable for special clients interested in a new form of travel into the unknown. The story takes place in three days, which are perceived by protagonist Jakob as fatal for his life. On a business trip in a remote Mediterranean resort he gets involved in a fatal relationship with Melitta, a young hotel owner, and mayor, who proves to be his officially missing father. Melitta shows him the way to Čamčatka, a land where coordinates of our world have vanished and where everything is possible.
