If we were to choose one man who's got everything going for him, then Lazar Perkov (Borce Nacev) would be an excellent choice. He's young, good-looking, has a beautiful wife, lovely little boy, great house and a good job as a hospital physician. In fact, everyone calls him "Lucky." Nothing's missing - except maybe Lucky himself, who's always trying to live up to the expectations of others. Like his bored wife (Filareta Atanasova) and roguish colleagues (Vladimir Jacev). And, above all, his famous physician mother (Sabina Ajrula-Tozija), a driven woman who - like a proto-feminist icon - rose from obscurity to renown with an iron will that crushed all resistance, whether from the living or the dead... When Lucky is involved in a disastrous car crash and mysteriously saved from a sure death, his life begins to change. He meets strange people: an old man with a baby (Salaetin Bilal), an ancient lady speaking a forgotten dialect (Ratka Radmanovic), a beautiful young woman with a sad secret (Vesna Stanojevska).
