After finally retiring from their family company at the end of their sixties, Angelina and Zoran realise that they have radically different ideas on how they should spend the rest of their lives.
When there's no more work or family to take care of, what is left of them?

Synopsis

Angelina and Zoran Kovach live a comfortable upper-middle-class life. In their late sixties, running a successful real estate business. Finally fed up with their control-freaking, their daughter Sofija throws them a retirement party. At first horrified, Angelina and Zoran agree: it’s time for retirement.
The previously outgoing and adventurous Zoran sees retirement as peace. Relaxation. Boredom. A country house. A little vegetable garden. Walks through the countryside. And every year, the same Mediterranean cruise.
The previously unassuming and quiet Angelina imagined retirement as adventure. Travel. Food. Skiing. Rollercoasters. Seeing places she didn’t have time to see. Having experiences she always longed for, but never could.
Angelina and Zoran desperately search for a solution that will work for both of them. Because they're only sure of one thing: they love each other. Or is it just a habit that kept them together?
