The film begins in an unusual place – a local mortuary. Each day, Risto and Safet, bet on the number of corpses they will receive. There is less then half an hour left to the end of the betting period and only one body in the mortuary: Ruzdija Kucuk, a local post-war wheeler-dealer.

But Ruzdija suffers from unusual illness: he faints and suffers a brief clinical death each time he is in a stressful situation. This happens to him when he visits the Ministry of Transport with an ingenious idea of privatizing the part of the railroad between his village and Sarajevo.
