Director Aneta Lesnikovska is itching to make a film, but she has no budget, so she starts working the cheap way in accordance with the Dogma rules and calls in friends. She deceives them into thinking she has found some foreign producers who are willing to finance the film and while shooting she looks for money high and low. Her debut film is a group portrait of youngsters in Skopje (Macedonia) in a mixture of fiction and reality.
