In the rundown Sarajevo suburb of Alipasino Polje, Faruk is an orphan who lives with his ill grandmother and spends his days foraging for scrap metal and dabbling in petty crime. One day he meets Mona, a timid teen from a politically powerful and affluent family. As Mona dreams of escaping the overbearing toxicity of her home life, she seeks refuge and opens herself up to Faruk, a boy from a world entirely different than her own.
"Igor Drljača's elegiac drama is an account of a post-war city, torn, lost and violent, where seeds of love may germinate but never reach the light. It's an examination of two classes colliding and how their perspectives differ. It's a despondent fairy tale of sorts." - Film Threat
