Keka is a virtuoso housewife whose marriage to Baja, an anxious railway worker, is in the doldrums. To make things even worse, Keka is being seriously courted by Ilija, a handyman who is so clumsy that he causes disasters wherever he goes. Baja finally becomes aware of Ilija’s intentions and after the two of them demolish Keka’s home with their clumsy showdowns, Keka decides to leave both of them and to go on a trip to the only place where she once felt some happiness – a small coastal village where she and Baja spent their honeymoon. However, things start to get complicated because Keka attracts the attention of Lujo, an unusual lonely fisherman-flirter. Baja and Ilija decide to go on a trip, to embark on the biggest adventure in their lives and to prove their love to Keka.
