An erotic photographer discovers hidden doorways in the city of Zagreb while taking photographs of naked girls. A performance artist lies naked and covered with fish in a shop-window display, as part of her latest art project. Her third husband, whom she met at a cemetery (just like her first one) paints her nails with nail polish. Two actors (a real life couple) simulate a rape scene. Chinese tourists discover whorehouses from the last century in present-day Zagreb while a singer yearns for the ‘right one’. Who is Gabriel and how does he fulfill the wishes of those who open their hearts?
