Only a handful of people inhabit the Croatian island of Biševo. Life on the island is far from ideal and change is needed, but the locals do not agree with the plans of the town hall.

Every season, the 15 permanent residents of the island of Biševo in the Adriatic Sea face an onslaught of tourists heading for the Blue Cave. Otherwise life is very simple and runs at a slow pace. The locals fish and cultivate wine and good relations. The town hall, located in the port town of Komiža on the adjacent island, comes up with a project to rebuild the original school into a new multimedia centre for visitors. However, the long-time residents would prefer it if the mayor and the deputies supported the local community instead of the tourists, who should stay out of the islanders' way. Will young Lucijo and his neighbours try to resist the mayor's plans?
