Life may be good for others, but the only milk and honey in Saša‘s life is in his father‘s special recipe for lamb. Saša is an unexceptional guy. He wants to write novels, but he‘s a Zagreb food critic. Divorced, he can only see his son occasionally. His most frequent phone caller is his mother. Then he meets Ines, his exact opposite: assertive, capable, beautiful. A sports center registrationclerk, trainer and masseuse, her life isn‘t perfect either. For her, Saša attempts to transcend his limits, to stand up against the chicanery and duplicity around him.
