  • Orig. Title: Važno je zvati se Kovačević

The protagonist of this documentary is a young Argentinean of Croatian origin who has been identifying with the heritage of his grandparents from early childhood and living 'the Croatian dream' through stories his parents told him. Selling his car to buy a plane ticket, he decides to embark on a 12,000 km journey, leaving his family, friends, and job behind to find out who he really is, and where his last name and ancestors come from. But will his sacrifice pay off?
