Marijana is a catlike girl, who does not think before she acts and whose scrawny body seems to function without any introspection or deliberation. Marijana is not apt at social interactions. She has no friends or lovers, but her confusing sexual drive is burning her up from inside. Her entire world takes place in the warm and squalid prison of the tiny flat she shares with her chubby brother and mother, and her once powerful, but now invalid father - the leader of the pack.
After the father has been taken ill, Marijana is meant to take his place in the family hirarchy. Her irrational mother and slightly slow brother turn into two impish hippopotamuses who at the same time fiercely molest her and touchingly depend on her, taking Marijana to the verge of a breakdown. At one point, she finds a rather unusual escape, a secret habit of mindless sexual encounters, which grant her unexpected inner strength and a sense of freedom. Nevertheless, it is clear from the start that the family and the rest of the world can’t really compete – Marijana’s place is with her pack.
