Three sisters living in an ancient city known for its toxic lead factory strive to break free from their past and get something more out of life in director Teona Strugar Mitevska's darkly comic family drama.
In a fractured landscape where communism and capitalism have both failed, virginal 27-year-old Afrodita (Labina Mitevska) lives in a modest home with her twin sister Sapho (Nikolina Kujaca) and their older sibling Slavica (Ana Kostovska).
Afrodita has remained mute ever since her mother walked out on the family and her father died, and Sapho is a promiscuous handball player whose many conquests fail to provide personal fulfillment. Slavica is a 35-year-old recovering drug addict whose radiant beauty can't make up for the fact that she is perceived by many as damaged goods.
If only Afrodita and Sapho could find their lonely sibling a suitable mate who could also stand as the family breadwinner, perhaps they could take the tentative first steps toward escaping their noxious hometown.
