This film explores xenophobia or intolerance to strangers, who in the story take the shape of aliens, representing diversity between races and cultures. We also see the encouragement of violence and the increase of drug use. In the end, the drugs have a disastrous effect, turning the good-natured Ivica and the aliens into crazy tyrants who ultimately destroy the world.
