Marko, Adi, Aco in Dejan hang out in front of block of flats in Fužine. Marko is pissed because he quit playing basketball and because the sexy TV presenter doesn’t notice him and because his father Radovan is going to beat him up for quitting basketball. Adi is irritated by the fact that his brother Sanel is a drug addict and because his father Mirsad prefers to shag waitresses somewhere in Austria than to deal with this. Makarovićka – a chefur girl gives a hard time to Aco and Aco would like to take a revenge on Damjanović – the bus driver. Dejan is anxious because his mother Sonja wants to move to Slovenske Konjice. Policemen stop the boys one night. And their world starts to disintegrate.
“We tend to forget how fragile and vulnerable the immigrant families are. Living abroad they are cut off not only from their culture, but also from their relatives and friends. Children are often out on a limb, because their parents feel helpless just like their kids do. They are all lost in the world of rules unclear to them, and of different social norms and customs. The parents hardly know what is right, what is allowed and what not, so they cannot teach and advise their children. And so the kids are left to the street and its ‘rules’.”
The literary success “Southern scum go home!” has for one year been one of Slovenian best sold books and hit top of charts of the most borrowed books from libraries country wide. The author of the novel, Goran Vojnović, was awarded the Slovenian national award Prešeren Fund Award and Kresnik award for best novel of the year. Meanwhile the novel was published in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Poland, Czech Republic and Sweden, while in Slovenia it was turned into a hugely successful theatre performance with more than 300 repetitions.
In collaboration with the legend of Yugoslavian film Abdulah Sidran (the author of screenplays for Kustorica’s cult films Do you remember Dolly Bell and When Father Was Away on Business) Vojnović wrote the screenplay that transferred the adventures of seventeen-year-old Marko Đorđić and his friends from Fužine to the screen. In this way the story about Fužine, Marko, Adi, Aco, Dejan, their »čefur« parents, sexy Tv presenter, annoying little »čefur« girls, beaten drivers and burning dumps will finally return to its starting point, since it was initially written as a screenplay and then later on transformed into a novel by its author Goran Vojnović.
