The film is an adaptation of a novel by Ismail Kadare and refers to the period, shortly before World War I, when Albania was liberated from the Ottoman Empire and a German prince was crowned king. It narrates, in a comic way, the adventures of a group of Muslims who, on the news of the Albanian liberation, leave their village to fight for their country and its new king. Instead of war, which, after all, is constantly changing fronts and moving, on their way they meet various characters, some friendly and others strange and dangerous. The leader of the group, under the phenomenon of a comet that appears every 100 years, abandoning the heroics, eventually falls in love with a Catholic nun. This is a very remarkable anti-war comedy.
