White White World Rose had an affair. When her husband found out, Rose killed him to safe herself. When she comes back from prison, a new tragedy waits for her.
King (Uliks Fehmiu), a former box champion, is now a dangerous and capricious bar owner of around 40 years, living in the decayed industrial town of Bor. King is a women's man who claims for himself to love no one. Unlike the men around him, he drives a motorbike and keeps in shape.
When he meets 16-year-old Rosa (Hana Semlinovic), he falls in love for the first time in his life. But rebellious Rosa is also the daughter of his former lover Ruzica (Jasna Djuricic), who just recently was released from prison. While Ruzica tries to change her life, King runs from town with her daughter. When they return, a secret will be revealed, that will destroy them.
The best moments of the film are offside the impressive visuals of the "biggest hole in european history", the former copper mine of the continent - they are owned by the incredible actors, who bring about a feeling of Cinema Verité. (negativ-film.de)
A classical Greek tragedy packed into Balkan Film. It is precisely this classical quality that provides the enormous strength, that juries in Locarno, Cottbus and Mar del Plata recognized. (cineuropa.org)
