Trailer

In the town of Bor, a deteriorating mining center in southeast Serbia, lives King. He is a man of about 40, once a miner, now a local bar owner, a solitary man answering only to himself and living only for what today might bring, without regrets or ever looking back. His one love is his mighty motorcycle, his only means of escape from the hopelessness of his surroundings.

He was once involved with Ruzica, the town beauty and the wife of his boxing coach and mentor Animal. When Animal found out about their affair and flew into a murderous rage, Ruzica killed him. She went to jail; King went abroad, returning a few years later on the bike with enough money to open the bar.
