Fifty Cigarettes for Elena, the latest novel by outstanding Croatian writer Marina Vujčić in its structure contains the chaos theory, the inaudible and imperceptible “butterfly effect” at the ordinary citizen and his everyday life level. The saying goes that a flap of butterfly wings in Beijing can cause a storm in Florida – but what can happen if a fifty year old man decides to mark his birthday by staying awake through entire twenty four hours, midnight to midnight, from the beginning to the end of his birthday and fulfill a bizarre vow to his dead twin sister by smoking fifty cigarettes in that time and keeping the fifty stubs?

The life of Oliver Radman, who made this decision, will not change in any way because of it. However, the night walk he undertakes in order to stay awake will influence the lives of three unknown people in a way Oliver could never have thought of and of which he will never become aware of.

Four parallel stories about these protagonists, seemingly totally unconnected, will take place through twenty four hours in a day when Oliver made that fateful decision. In spite of this they will remain strangers, although this day, for some maybe the rest of their lives, would look completely different had they not crossed each other’s path.
