Jedan Narod-Jedna Prica is a play envisioned as a display of 4 most important customs among Serbs: Christmas, Slava, Wedding and Easter, through historical epochs. Throughout the history of Serbian people, one story keeps repeating itself. Finding themselves at the crossroads and interests of powerful figures, Serbian people were always the center of controversy and were in the way of others achieving their goals. As a rule, but also symbolically, targets of all attacks were Serbian customs, religion, and tradition, as well as bearers and foundation of its people. Serbian people never did learn the lessons required from these critical situations and wars, and as a result, brought on more attacks and endangerment. This play has to send a message of necessity and unity of Serbian people, through loyalty to religion and knowledge of its customs and tradition.
