Synopsis / Plot
Every January in a small town in Macedonia, the high priest throws a cross into the local waters, while hundreds of men charge for it. The one who finds the cross is believed to gain overall good fortune and prosperity. An unemployed single young woman Petrunija jumps into the water and catches the cross. In this conservative setting, her competitors feel they have every right to be furious: a woman dared to compete and achieve what they faild to achieve. Petrunija insists that she is the winner and refuses to return the cross.
