Every January in Stip, a small town in Macedonia, the local priest throws a wooden cross into the river, and hundreds of men dive in after it. Good fortune and prosperity are guaranteed to he who retrieves it. This year, Petrunya dives into the water on a whim and manages to grab the cross before the others. Her competitors are furious – how dare a woman take part in their ritual? All hell breaks loose, but Petrunya holds her ground. She has won her cross, and she will not give it up.
