Petrunya studied history, is 31 years old, overweight and lives with her parents. It is Epiphany and Petrunya passes a procession. In an old custom on this day, the priest throws a blessed cross into the cold river and hundreds of men dive after it. Petrunya also jumps into the river in this traditionally all-male event and manages to retrieve the cross.
Supporting film: Imam pesmu da vam pevam, 5 minutes, short documentary by Eluned Zoë Aiano and Alesandra Tatić.
