In the Teofania ritual in a small town in North Macedonia, as dozens of men race to retrieve the wooden cross thrown into the water by the priest, Petrunya jumps into the water from the other side of the river and grabs the cross. Never before has a woman been able to take the cross, which is believed to bring abundance and good fortune, out of the water, but Petrunya will not give up easily. She struggles to shake off the men chasing her to take back the cross, the law enforcement forces, the Church, and the media, who have found the sensational news they were looking for.
