This is an omnibus consisting of three stories, all of which deal with deviations of the human psyche. In the story Waltz, we learn about the first sexual experiences of a man who attends a dancing school in Split. In the story Ave Maria, a cruel crime destroys a pastoral idyll, and in the story Seas, we meet a family, living on an isolated island, that goes through an existential crisis ending in murder.

This film is a combination of three previously separate shorter films Valcer/Moj prvi ples (1970), Ave Marija/Moje prvo pijanstvo (1971) and Mora (1972). The first film distinguishes itself by its predominantly grotesque poetics and the author’s cynicism; the second is a combination poetic and grotesque-morbid elements, with intermittent elements of structuralism; the third one cobbles together an anxious atmosphere via a structuralistic approach. All three of these films were made in the Film Author Studio of Zagreb. Adria Film of Zagreb initiated their compilation. Kronika jednog zločina won an award at the film festival in Chicago.
