Vida and Bane, a wealthy Serbian couple, have been living in Stockholm for a long time. They are dedicated to their careers and have no children. They visit their homeland Serbia only in summer and for holidays. Vida thinks Bane is having an affair in Belgrade but she keeps it to herself. At Easter, they travel back to Serbia to be with their family. This time, things change. The hitherto carefully maintained choreography starts falling apart and the wall of silence finally crumbles. Ajvar is a story about living and working in a foreign country and about a relationship going sour. And about a jar of spread, ajvar, as an anchor between the two worlds apart. For her role in the film, Nataša Ninković was awarded the Golden Mimosa for Best Actress at the Montenegro Film Festival.
