Merlin, a transvestite, and Sanela, a prostitute, share a home in the suburbs of Belgrade. Dzoni, who has returned from fighting on the Bosnian front gets to know them. A bit of sex is what he needs to overcome political violence and macho aggression.

Žilnik counters the homophobia and transphobia of Balkan societies which came to light years after the fall of the Berlin Wall with an early and anarchistic stand in what is still, to this day, one of the most extraordinary films to emerge from the entire region.
