A typical cross-section of bigoted neighbours in an apartment building are invited to a private party to honour the memory of the late Marija Violić, a fellow tenant, friend and grandmother. Instead of descending into sentimental cliché, the party soon evolves into a reality show, complete with all-singing, all-dancing interludes. The venue for this unique gathering is Marija’s apartment and the music is provided by the hired musicians – a bunch of complete unknowns as far as the guests are concerned but in real life, the hugely popular Czech dance electro-trash band midi lidi.

And the purpose of this unique get-together? To finally fulfill a long overdue family obligation to the late, great, dearly departed Marija.
