What the hell is Turbofolk? Folk itself is bad enough already. But the Serbians say - it can always get worse. In the film a female Turbofolksinger falls in love with a young curator from Belgrad. Their liason unite two worlds, that are incompatible: It´s a story about a controversial city and a story of love, an ode to Turbofolkmusix and a visualization of serbian queer identity.
