The picture is set on the bank of the river Danube where a Gypsy named Matko - a petty criminal - dwells. One day it occurs to him to smuggle the entire train with gas on the Istanbul - Belgrade route, and make a small fortune. However, he needs financial support to carry out this undertaking. That's way he, along with his son Zare, pays visit on Grga Pitic - the Gypsy Godfather - and old family friend. The Godfather accepts the proposal, but it turns out that Matko is not capable of handling such a task. Namely Dadan, young gangster, a cocaine addict and techno fan, forestalls him. The naive Matko finds himself owing money to Dadan and suddenly he comes up with an advantageous idea: he proposes that his son Zare should marry Dadan's diminutive sister called Ladybird. However, Zare has crush on another Gypsy girl - blond Ida. The wedding day comes and everybody is blissful except Zare and Ida. While the guests savor the bliss of the occasion and Dadan dances, the ingenious bride Ladybird takes the advantage of nobody paying attention and flees her own wedding. While on the run she meets Grga, the Big One and they fall in love. Another affair ends happily, too: Zare, finally unengaged, and his girlfriend Ida get on the boat drifting down the river Danube.
