The protagonist of the movie is the small and crowded Croatian bus terminal in Rijeka, the living room of a town on the threshold of changes. As the plans for building a larger bus terminal are overshadowed by the busy preparations for Croatia's entering the EU, the old station Žabica continues serving as the crossroads for tourists and an integral part of the local community. It is a place where collective or individual memories and struggles are at disposal.
