Vjeko and Ante live in the same apartment building but are virtual strangers. When misfortune pushes them together, the two men must put aside their prejudices and discover the human beneath the hatred.

Vjeko, a middle-aged professor and cross-dressing gay man, feels disdain for the Serbian population in Croatia. Ante, a Serbian police officer living one flight below, is the personification of Vjeko's contempt. But when Vjeko is viciously attacked and requires a nurse to take care of his ailing father, Ante’s wife Maia agrees to assist—but only if Vjeko consents to meet with Ante and help him study for an important test. In the end, each man has an important lesson to learn.

A love story about hate, The Constitution upholds the power of an open mind and an open heart.
