Nazif works as a scrap dealer, struggling to make it to the end of the month. His wife, Senada, spends the day at home looking after their two children, and with a third one on the way. When she starts having pains, Senada goes to the hospital, and discovers that she has had a miscarriage and that her life is in danger. But she doesn’t have medical insurance, and the medical attention she needs would cost an amount that is a fortune for them. This is the start of a thousand difficulties for Nazif as he tries to save his wife’s life, over the course of a few days during which his somewhat anti-system condition (he is a gypsy and works within the black economy) will bring him into conflict with the rules of the game in contemporary capitalist society.
