    • Synopsis
    • Ten-year old Nori and his father Gesim earn their living by selling cigarettes in pre-war Kosovo of the nineties. Gesim will hear nothing of Nori’s mother. He is an expert at escaping the past and now he wants to flee Kosovo, without Nori. But the boy tries everything in his means to prevent his dad from leaving. An accident results. The shocked father takes Nori to the hospital. When Nori gets out, his father is simply gone. Angry, yet determined Nori sets out on a perilous journey to find his father and indeed finds him in Germany. With the persistence only a child can have, he confronts his father and can not forgive him for desertion.
