performance. There most certainly are people who will be shocked by
this show (as a lady was when she saw the actress Mirjana Karanovic

exploration of life in middle age Scotland. Its basis is formed by
relationships between The Woman (Mirjana Karanovic), The
Agriculturist (Edhem Husic) and The Millman (Ermin Bravo). The woman

natives, their balck spots, he watches over their miserable faiths,
reads from their soles. Mirjana Karanovic plays safely (physical
expression has always been her stronger side), that is the character
that we can envy her on. Without mistakes in accent and any
overplaying, this female role is undoubtedly going to be remembered.

after (physically very exciting) slaughter of The Agriculturist and
sex with The Millman takes “her own path”.
