Don Fabijan (Krešimir Mikić) is a young priest who comes to serve on an unnamed small island in the Adriatic. In order to help increase birth rate on the island, he decides to pierce condoms before they are sold. He therefore teams up with the newsagent Petar (Nikša Butijer) and the pharmacist Marin (Dražen Kühn).

After they abolish all forms of birth control on the entire island, the consequences become more and more complicated.
