Almighty and all-knowing Jesus Christ, equally all-knowing auntie Anka, and a curious hog Beba are the main protagonists of this rural musical comedy, situated in the mellow Croatian Zagorje during the 1990s war years. The folklore backdrop of the village life is dominated by the dramatic love between Beba and Roki, a boar of half-Serbian origin, and the breakdown of the hair salon bonnet dryer that tragically leaves auntie Anka with a half-done haircut.
