Ante turns twelve today. Less than a year old when a missile killed his mother, can he grow up to forget the past or will his country's history scar him forever?

Ljubica: Ante lives with his father. They have this strong bond.

Neighbour: Happy together, sad together. They live together one day at a time. No one new ever enters their little world.

Jela: Till one day.

Neighbour: Till today.
