It's the 3rd highest-grossing Croatian film in that country since it achieved independence in the 1990s, and an audience favorite at film festivals. Somewhat reminiscent of the Scottish film, “Local Hero,” it's about an idealistic young priest determined to do something about the declining birth rate among his flock on a beautiful unnamed island in the Adriatic Sea. The satire pokes fun at the Church's stance on family planning in a highly cinematic and magical way.
