Thirty-five old Nikola comes back home after he had left a year ago, in a quarrel.
His father Vlado and mother Anica came to Germany when they were young, looking for happiness.
In their rush to earn money and hard work they had little time for their family, and the kids suffered from it. Finally, there comes a time to pack and go back to their homeland.
Their dream is to open a hotel on the seaside.
Father wants to make that dream come true in his old days. When Nikola appears at the door one day, the joy is overwhelming at first.
His parents hope this is not just a visit, but the reunion and that they will all go back to Croatia together…
