It is a beautiful sunny day in the middle of the working week. Krešo and his old friend Jole spend the day in a park, shooting their mouths off, smoking one joint after another and talking about what they "could do". We are privy to their fantasies as they plan, scheme and debate the best and quickest way to make some money. A robbery would be cool, but what is the best target: a post office, a newsstand, a pharmacy or the local dealer? With each joint, their plans become more ludicrous and elaborate, until a call from the outside world interrupts their chill-out session. Ah well, they’ll be back here again tomorrow…
