Is it free?

Do you have any food?

Tickets, please.

Show me your tickets.

Tickets, please!

To Skopje.

- Two tickets?

- Two.

This is not enough.

Have a good trip.


For her soul's sake.

I don't drink.

For your mother's soul sake,


No new stuff, huh?

Why are you dressed like this?

We got jobs at a bank.

- At a bank?

- Yes, we're on our lunch break.

What do you want?


Take them and buy yourself

a whore, bullshitter.

Grow up already.

And I don't want to see you again

with that sissy Pavel, understood?

What's up?

Where have you been?

I've been waiting for an eternity.

I was waiting for my father.

For money.

So, what now?

We'll go upstairs.

- What floor?

- The uppermost.

Visiting someone?

- What is this, bro?

- I have no idea.

Some kind of an organization.

They gather here and hold speeches.

A sect?

Should I answer?

Come on, don't fool around.

You painted it?

There is no competition in the city.

How many times should I tell you?

I don't scribble on walls. I paint.

Then, let's see some colour.

Make a colour graffiti.

You dumbwit. Colour is an optical

illusion, like the rainbow.

It comes and it goes.

A white wall and a black spray.

What the f*ck are we doing here,


I wanted you to see what's

in the devil's pupil.

Only if we have any luck...

Turn the lights off.

Get up, quickly.


She saw me.

She can't see you, stupid,

she's in the light,

we're in the dark.

She covered it.

- The hole is under her hook.

You can write her a song.

'A look into the devil's pupil".

- Lucia is hot on poetry.

- F*ck you.

I'm serious. Isn't she the head

of the poetry cub?

Of the drama club, asshole.

Poetry, drama,

what's the difference?

No one could tell me,

in fact,

Maybe because there was

no one anymore.

But I knew. There will be

no next train for me to go away.

In fact, nothing matters anymore.

I should leave the station.

I go. I go, but something

calls me from behind the mountain.

And no one knows, but me.

I came back.

I came back to wait at the stinky,

foggy station.

I came back to wait

for the next train.

I came back because I wanted to see

the light at the end of the tunnel.

Thank you, Anna.

Considering the fact that

our teachers are on strike,

and there is no heating

in our school, the club

will continue working when

the strike ends.

Until then, think about the preparation

for the drama part of the event.

Think modern.

May I come in?

Do you have a cigarette?

I found out you live

a this new address.

- So what?

- So... I wrote a poem for you.

A poem?

A poem for me?

How sad.

What is sad?

You write poetry, but still,

you have dirt under your fingernails.

Come to the Club tonight.

- Which cub?

- Where your pal works. That cub.

How did you get in?

Through the door. I told them

I came to visit you.

Did you hear?

They have broken the strike.

The school is on from next week.

They have fired half of the professors.

There will be new ones, they say.

Is she here?

- Who?

- Lucia.

- No. Why?

- We have a date.

Here? Next time, before you make

an appointment with a girl here,

call me up. You can make trouble for me,

Jan, this is a private club.

Aren't you hot?

Aren't you cold?

What do you want, Jan?

- I want you.

- Well, I am here.

So close, you could put

your tongue into my mouth.

You play with toys?

- What happened?

- What could happen?

With Lucia.

I think she's an ordinary goose.

How much are these?

As much as you can't afford.

- Whom is it from?

- From the Boss.

Thanks, I don't drink.
