In a tram on Route-3, the Old Lady in the leopard dress treats the passengers with juicy oranges during a hot, but rainy day in the centre of Sarajevo. Nadja, the princess-teen in her pink hijab; Luka, the virgin bully; an Orthodox Priest; an old creepy man and many, many more ordinary people in this tram have nothing in common, but a juicy slice of orange. All except a shy, yet horny, teenager named Amar.
● The film is part of the "Sarajevo City of Film", powered by Sarajevo Film Festival.

"As someone who is familiar with the unpleasant feeling of being afraid to express my attraction to someone in public, I identify with Amar, a teenager discovering his “forbidden” sexual attraction for this beautiful Muslim girl. I understand how he feels trapped and judged by the strangers in this conservative, yet full of sexual energy, tram ride of the historic Route-3 in the centre of the charming city of Sarajevo."
