Summary It's the late 1940s in Skopje, Yugoslavia, in the critical year leading to Tito's break with Stalin. Pushed to leave mountain villages to become the new proletariat in urban factories, a flood of peasants crowds into Skopje - and with them, all of their goats. Suffering from hunger, Skopje's citizens welcome the newcomers. But municipal leaders are faced with a dilemma when the central government issues an order calling for the slaughter of the country's goat population. With food so scarce, will they hide the outlawed animals? Or will they comply with the edict and endure the bite of hunger?
