Zivorad (Zika) Mitrovic

Short description:
18 years old man lives in Savamala, the notorious part of Belgrade. In 1936. In Europe, you could feel the danger from the approaching world clash. In stormy ambient of Savamala, different passions conflict, and bloody strikes are a premonition of larger struggle. The young man is trying to exit the frames of poor life and to reach "better society". He falls in love, draws comics, and Savamala offers him poverty of everyday's life, crime, gambling, anarchy, singers, failed poets. But, different men emerge, political conscience of the repressed also. From the events which will disturb Savamala and from their participants, the young man will learn about world and life, and will become a man instead of scatterbrain.
