Synopsis:

In Stip, a small town in Macedonia, every January the local priest throws a wooden cross into the river and hundreds of men dive after it. This time, Petrunija dives into the water and manages to grab the cross before the others. Her competitors are furious - how dare a woman take part in their ritual? All hell breaks loose... Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the 2019 Berlinale!
