Bor, Serbia, was once the largest copper mine in Europe, now it is just the biggest hole. Best friends, Toda and Stefan spend their first summer after high school skating in the abandoned mine and making ‘Jackass-like’ videos. When Dunja, a friend who has returned from France for her summer holidays, arrives on the scene, the boys vie for her attention in ways that tear at the fabric of their relationship. Straining their friendship further, Stefan will be going to University in Belgrade in the fall while Toda professes he wouldn't go to University, even if he had the money. In the meantime, Union protests in town, which started small, gain momentum and the boys are thrust back together under a common cause.
