Kosovo in the spring of 2000. Winter is over, but in a meteorological sense only. Ruins and pain. The marks of devastation in the sunny landscape. Wounds that never heal, the hesitating, vague gestures of a new beginning. Two words, Deza and Fëmijët, they mean children in Serb and Albanian. These expressions have no place in the irrational dictionary of war. It is the children who are the most defenceless victims of this war governed by mad hatred. Their suffering has become an indelible chapter of the chronicle at the end of the century, the dawn of the new millennium. Besarta, Violeta, Edmond and Valdrim, Miljana and Elena are Albanian and Serb children. The film tells their story in black and white with colour Super 8 images shot by the children themselves.
