Set in the rundown Sarajevo suburb of Alipasino Polje, writer/director Igor Drljaca's gripping drama focusses on Faruk (Pavle Cemerikic, giving a captivating performance), 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 (Sumeja Dardagan), 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.
