Kiti in Jožek, a young couple from the Prekmurje region become redundant at their place of work. Full of hope, they go to Ljubljana to seek new employment. Through an ad, they hire a modest room in Epifani and Aleks's apartment. Although Epifani is the owner, Aleks, her lover and ex musician, leases the room without her consent. Jožek tries to get a waiting job but fails. His urban hopes start falling apart and the money they've brought with them runs dry. The situation in the apartment gets tense, too. Aleks, whose legs are broken because of old debts that go back to the infamous 'Catch the Cash' scam, instantly wastes the collected rent. Epifani is very much fed up with him, but is still making an effort to save their relationship. Aleks is desperate and helpless. One night, when stress gets the best of him, Aleks knocks on Jožek's door and desperately asks him for help. Jožek sees how he could benefit from Aleks's misfortune. A warrior nature surfaces in him from ancestral line going back to the great leader, Vilmoš Tkalec, who led the north-eastern region of Slovenia into declaration of the independent Republic of Prekmurje in 1919, a state that flourished for no less than four days. Jožek prepares his helpless coin-habitants for a face-off and when the debt-collectors appear at the door they see Jožek geared up for combat.
