At a fair, Veronka steals two Turkish delights from Milan's stand. When he finds out she did it only because she was hungry, he takes pity on her and buys her lunch. In return, she offers to become his sales assistant. And the two outsiders grow closer – he doesn't mind she's a Romany, she doesn't care he doesn't have a leg. Set in eastern Slovakia, this romantic comedy offers sparkling performances of both leading actors and an authentic local dialect.
