An empty and deserted apartement in the time of a political campaign. Muki and his pregnant friend Sončica have to carry out an assassination of the presidential candidate to earn enough money for their departure for Paris - the city that for them has became a mythical place of better opportunities, as opposed to the hopeless every-day image of "the nation of loosers" they are trying to escape.
However, their plan is brought to a halt by the student - a resigned pacifist whose calmed beliefs show only pale remains of resistance and the wish to end social conventions. The three members of the young and lost generation begin to re-question the reasons for their dissatisfaction with the society and the motives that force them toward changes. The idealistic struggle for a "more just society", the need for revolution, the selfish materialistic motivations and personal frustrations all interwined in the motive of the Sniper - whose bullet has to kill a high-profile politician - with the Sniper serving as a methaphorical demonstration of the confrontation with the society and oneself.
