Everyone thinks Stanko is living the idyllic life of a musician in London. His little brother Vojo believes he's a hero. But what Vojo doesn't know is that fifteen years ago, Stanko fled Montenegro after a failed attempt to kill the man who murdered their father. A chance glimpse of his nemesis on TV is all it takes to drive Stanko onto the first flight back to Podgorica, hell-bent on finishing what he started. Meanwhile, Vojo's biggest problem is being peer-pressured into having sex with his girlfriend. Knowing he isn't remotely prepared, Vojo turns to his brother for help. Stanko decides to postpone his revenge - but a sordid trip into the underbelly of Podgorica soon brings him face to face with the friends and promises he betrayed on that fateful night, fifteen years ago. Momčilo Otašević delivers an understated but affecting performance as Stanko, a man torn between his dreams, his desire to be a good brother, and his obsession with vengeance. Steeped in the miasma of the Yugoslav War, 'The Kids from Marx and Engels Street' spins a tense, melancholy, and yet startlingly hopeful tale of revenge and brotherhood.
