Our story begins when the two gangster Brothers who rule the neighborhood beat a fellow scrap picker to death. This is the Brothers' way of enforcing payments for illegally sold alcohol. A few days later the Brothers come up with an extraordinary proposal for Edi. They want him to tutor Princess, their 17- year old sister whom they have been bringing up since the death of their parents. The Brothers choose Edi because they know about his passion - Edi is an avid reader, always keeping the books he finds in the garbage. Another reason is Edi's looks - his ugliness is a guarantee that the feisty girl won't sleep with him. Three months later it turns out that Princess is pregnant. The Brothers' first suspicion falls on Gypsy - a young supplier of illegal alcohol who has always been attracted to the girl. When, furious and determined, they swear to take revenge, Princess protects her beloved by telling her brothers that Edi is the father... - Opus Film Collection: Language Resource Center
