Show parodies politics in Serbia. Main character is a stupid, selfish, bad person who tries to climb all the way up to the top of the Serbian government. Show also gives you a look of people who work for/with him.

Jelisaveta 'Seka' Sablic,
The series is based on the 1936 novel "Wounded Eagle" by Serbian author Mir Jam. Like the novel, the television series is based in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia between the two world wars and centers around the love life of the young and naive protagonist Andjelka Bojanic. After marrying a Montenegrin lawyer she quickly realizes she has made a mistake. Since she had already lost her virginity in her teen years, something looked down upon at the time, her husband, who only learns of this after marrying her divorces her quickly. Andjelka relocates to Trebinje in order to put her life back on track. There she meets new people, her new love and most importantly her past catches up with her. This is where most of the drama and heart ache occurs.
After zillion of inspired-by-the-war series and movies, including explicit descriptions of tears and blood shed all over former Yugoslav territory; after the era of movies that left us a little or no hope at all - this is nice refreshment. Love, lust, sin, regrets, emotions... I believe that something like "Wounded eagle" is what we need: a long forgotten feelings, something we need to remind us what we are made of: flash and blood, I know; but also emotions, memories, moments we live for... The fact that everybody is talking about Andjelka and "wounded eagle" and how they found love, tells a lot that we are thirsty of such subtle and fine emotions which are served to us in this story... A fairytale, the one we'd like to see, again. The reason why it got 8/10 and not 10/10 from me is poor acting by some of actors amongst, generally speaking, good cast. However, nice emotions prevailed...
