Genre: Drama, History
A story of a young woman, Juliša, who marries the son of the richest landowner in the village but does not resist her father-in-law’s violent seduction and inadvertently finds herself in the middle of a rough love triangle. Piargy is a symbol of modern Sodom and Gomorrah, a mirror of the distorted morals of the society. At the same time, it is a naturalistic metaphor for the subordinate position of women in the patriarchal society.
