A country family moves to the better life of the city. The FATHER works as a butcher in a meatmarket; the MOTHER as a cashier in a department store. Their DAUGHTER goes to basic school, but technical subjects don’t interest her. She’s the worse in the class and has constant problems with her TEACHER. The SON studies at a training institution for food professions since his father wants him to be a butcher as well. The son, however, is physically weak, and what’s more, a vegetarian, an anarchist and heavy into marijuana. He has endless conflicts with his strict SCHOOL SUPERVISOR, his father as well as the police. The behavior is beyond the father, especially when the father starts burning with lust for an attractive young female butcher. The mother tries everything - visiting a cosmetic salon, a psychotherapist, a church confessional – but the husband completely loses interest in her and moves into the young butcheress’ rooming house. The whole world collapses for the mother and she seeks revenge against the young butcheress. And if that‘s not enough, tangling all this up further is an Skritek with a magic stick that turns every serious situation into absurdity and humor.
