The Constitution tells the story of Vjeko, a Croatian teacher dedicated to the history and language of his country. In an apartment in the center of Zagreb, Vjeko takes care of his father, a former Ustafarian officer, who has been forced into a bed for six years now, and he is saddened by the loss of his love, the cellist Bobo, not resigning himself to this separation. Deeply depressed and with suicide as the only apparent solution, Vjeko finds pleasure only in his night promenades around the city, dressed as a woman with make up too. But after a violent beating over a night, the man meets Maja at the hospital, an infirmary who recognizes him and begins to look after both him and his father. In order to repay, Vjeko decides to help Maja's husband, a Serbian-born policeman named Ante, to prepare an examination on the Croatian Constitution, creating a curious and unexpected interweaving of the lives and stories of three very different people who they will be strongly linked to each other.
