After her domineering father suffers a stroke, Marijana takes over his role as the head of the family. Working two jobs, she takes care of her irresponsible mother and slow brother. The new power hierarchy enables her to discover her inner strength and get a taste of freedom. Marijana starts exploring her sexuality, constantly pushing her boundaries.” (ZFF)
