Short summary

This is story about love and tragedy. It takes place in grim social setting of city outskirts. Badema, a seductive local girl, meets Becir Kuduz who just had come out of prison. Neither the age diference nor fact that Badema has a little girl of her own (without knowing who father is) stops them from coming together, each with plans of their own. Kuduz dream of starting up his own construction business, Badema wonts to work in local cafe where it's fun and never boring. 

But Badema,  is obviously a bit light-hearted and is no homebody. Kuduz, meanwhile, is a man plagued by tragedy, torn by love, passion and jealousy. The two squabble and make up, then fight and split up only to return, and so story unfolds until it reaches its inevitable tragic end. And it would all be utterly banal and unimportant were it not for fact that behind this tragedy lies pure, true love of two people who find each other in this cruel world: Kuduz and Badema's five year old daughter Amela.
