People from the Milky Way

Original title “Ljudi s mliječnog puta”

 

The world we live in is changing dramatically. Being a transition country on the way to the European Union, Croatia is facing dilemmas and hard decisions. Individuals are anxiously trying to read off their destiny and their chances in future. This is a story about arduous everyday life, anxiety, plans and dreams of popular dairywomen from Zagreb’s green markets. The popular cottage cheese with cream they are selling could either become a Croatian brand or could disappear due to new rules and regulations. How does the world politics affect the lives of these people and their families? Do they and their cheese have future? Will their sons, daughters and grandchildren inherit the long acquired family skills or will they leave their farms and leave the country in search of better jobs?
