The plot of the film “The Party” takes place in 1991 in an unfinished weekend house on the slopes of Fruška gora and through the birthday party of one of the heroines, as the central event of the film, the plot follows the individual destinies of thirteen young people facing war paranoia. Apart from conjuring up the image of the coming hopelessness through the individual destinies of the characters, “The Party” also represents a gentle homage to the spirit of the carefree eighties.
