One day, Johnny, a failed club owner (Sido), finds a young Roma woman called Sophia on his doorstep. She claims to have come straight from Belgrade, where she ran away from her wedding. Although he barely knows the woman and doesn't speak her language, he takes her in. Soon, they become a couple. When Sophia stars feeling homesick, Johnny is prepared to invite her parents to visit. This turns his already complicated life upside down, as it's not just Mama and Papa who come to stay, but the whole clan. A turbulent comedy about the many facets of ready hospitality.
