This is a story of Ranta, boy so tall he could tie neckties on giraffes. He ate everything you brought him on a plate and a plate, he was so skinny that sun shone through him and so lazy that the bed almost had to come to him, otherwise he would fall asleep standing up.

One day school’s gym teacher invites him to play for a basketball team and Ranta’s world is turned upside down. He never thought basketball would change his life. Beginnings are difficult. At his first game, he scores for the wrong team, causing mockery in his
school. He falls in love with his schoolmate Metka. Like any first love usually is, it is a bit clumsy and reserved. As soon as Ranta gets better in basketball, he's followed by the manager of the opposite team – Tini Trska – with his two minions-assistants. He tries to persuade Ranta to join his team. One weekend, when Ranta's parents are away, Smodlak, his best friend suggests Ranta to hosts a party at his house. At first, Ranta is not excited about the idea, but once Metka agrees to come, Ranta says yes. The party is a success, Ranta and Metka dance and kiss. As every true, big love, also their love encounters a few difficulties, which lead to a fight. Ranta persistently tries to win back Metka, but she's too stubborn. After a while, Smodlak offers a brilliant solution – Ranta should sing a serenade to Metka. Unfortunately Ranta sings completely off-key, but no matter,
Metka is touched and they get back together. Meanwhile Tini Trska visits Ranta's parents, trying to influence Ranta's decision on joining his team. Ranta’s parents are convinced joining Tini’s team would be a good thing for their son, so they suggest Ranta to go to Tini's office for an interview. When he goes, he hears Tini's assistants in the men’s room, talking about plans they have for Ranta’s future, which reveal an unpleasant truth. He's disappointed and decides to return and play for his old team Sokoli. At the final match between Sokoli and Superce, Ranta plays brilliantly, leading his team to victory.

A film about the first Laibach album officially released in Yugoslavia. The record came out despite the political ban that was in place on the band’s name at the time, in 1985 – but without the name or a title. A black cross on the cover was enough.

The surreal, dystopian, sci-fi thriller set somewhere along the border of Fortress Europe is a sensational, action-packed, visually stunning political allegory in which miracles are trafficked for small change.
