    • Synopsis
    • In Sarajevo, Mirsada and her daughter Vanesa survive, after 25 years, in the collective center of Hrasnica, waiting for a definitive housing solution that never comes.
      In Georgia, the 78 year-old Bela struggles every day to recover the bodies of the disappeared in the wars of Abkhazia. At the same time, hundreds of displaced people due to the conflict begin to acquire the promised government housing in Tbilisi. However, Dani, Gio and Vika, aged 11, find it difficult to assume that they will have to separate and leave the neighborhood where they grew up.
      And in Greece, Alia and Hussein, who fled the Syrian war, look forward to family reunification and their reunion with their daughter Zozan from Polykastro, a state of limbo from which it's not easy to leave.
      What connections can there be between people who live so far geographically but are united in the same wound? The film explores this question in depth, following the daily lives of the protagonists — people displaced by the wars in the Balkans, Syria and Abkhazia who, although in the middle of nowhere, in a non-place, share a great and firm determination to keep on searching.
