A Short Story

An enigmatic character tells the story (a prophecy originating from Eastern Bosnia) that has been transmitted mouth to mouth for over half a century. This mysterious story starts at the beginning of 2nd World War and evokes historical events that happened since and are yet to come…
The film, among other things, tries to highlight the particular role that oral tradition plays in the region.
