Djuro works as an apprentice at master Gajaš, who is an elderly owner of a garage. The tranquil life of the young apprentice is troubled by the arrival of the dark-hair belle Bronja, who is married to Lepec, the local ruffian and pimp. Bronja and Djuro start a very risky love affair that does not stay unnoticed. Meanwhile, Gajaš himself has his love fantasies too. He dreams about Severina, a well-known pop singer that is on the tour and is coming to their town. When an opportunity offers to meet her, Gajaš shivers with excitement. Rooster's Breakfast is a love story. It is put into a small town, almost a village. The film protagonists live their quiet and imperceptible lives; however, each one of them has hidden passions that are the reason for the happening to dramatise.

Nagrada za glavno moško vlogo gre Vladu Novaku za njegov pretanjen portret Gajaša, starejšega lastnika avtomehanične delavnice, čigar skrita strast je pop pevka Severina. Njegova igra ostane gledalcu v spominu še dolgo potem, ko se film že izteče.
