SYNOPSIS

From the heart of Serbia comes a story of an Eastern Asterix and Obelix saga:
Pranjani is a small village in central Serbia. Locals earn their living abroad or as farmers. Many count themselves among the Chetniks, Serbian patriots and WWII resistance fighters. So far, so normal. But every May, the Rakijada takes place - a championship that is all aboutwho can drink the most, balance on wooden poles and brew the best magic potion-Rakija, plum brandy.

A portrait of a sleepy village that shines a new light on the Serbian soul, while
never losing sight of the typical humour of the Balkans.
