Marko and Atanas are two dudes whose lives would be sweet as strudel but for an annoying little problem with their papers. They need a European passport and they are prepared to do almost anything to get one, including buying a wife. With nothing but their brass necks and 7,000 euros, they set out to find the woman of their dreams — one who will walk them down aisle and then hang around long enough for the divorce. An odyssey through Vienna's immigrant netherworld, this real-life Green Card is an hilarious and touching insight into what it takes to jump the barriers of Fortress Europe.
This is a story of life and death told through the language of music. Fifteen musicians of the funeral orchestra in Kavadarci now struggle to survive. Once they played at about seventy funerals a year, but since a chapel was built next to the cemetery entrance, almost no one orders music for funerals. The families do not wish to pay for a hundred meters of music, i.e. the distance from the chapel to the graves, since people in town will hardly hear it. So the musicians now try to earn some money by playing at weddings and similar festivities, but very few would hire the funeral orchestra to play at a wedding.
