Synopsis: A young scholar, Zare Misevski and his wife Mira, a theatrical costume designer, are living in a rented room under pressure from the disturbances and curiosity of their neighbours. These are the circumstances in which Zare is given the key of the Ethnographic Museum in Ohrid to put it in order. For the family this means an escape a quiet oasis of peace for the three summer months which they are to spend in Ohrid. Wishing to share their good fortune with their friends, they, each in their own way, tell them about their windfall. It is summer. Zare and Mira are in the museum in Ohrid. Zare works on his project and Mira spends her time painting, trying not to disturb his work. But their problems begin when Dara Lybina, a collegue of Mira's, pays them a visit. She is wretched because her latest love affair has come to an end. Zare still hasn't calmed down when Nestor Gievski, his ex-professor, comes to spend a couple of days of his holiday in their temporary home, on his way to Athens. Mira and Zare reconcile themselves to the new circumstances, but not for long. Mira's brother and some friends of his pay a visit to his sister and brother-in-law. The invasion of the museum continues with Zare's uncle and aunt and the family Pop-Kochev , who are having problems with the accommodation, who are invited by another uncle, Tale, to come to the museum. The situation in the household gets out of control. It is solved only when Mira demands peace in a hotel. The guests finally come to understand that they can't count on the tolerance and long-suffering of their hosts and leave the museum. Mira comes back and all becomes quiet. Zare can work in peace again, and Mira can paint but not for long. New guests are already on their way.
