    • In a battered Sarajevo suburb, an orphan Faruk (17) lives with his dying grandmother. He picks up scrap metal with his uncle, while committing petty crimes with his friend Almir (19). Almir’s gang plans a trip to the coast, and one place remains in the car. To win the place, Faruk is given five days to take a girl’s virginity, and just as it appears he has lost, he meets Mona (14). Mona drifts aimlessly between her home, shopping malls and school. When her career-oriented parents, Aida and Slaven decide to send her to be schooled in Vienna, Mona
      discovers that they plan to divorce. While at the mall with her girlfriends she meets Faruk.
      Faruk and Mona continue to meet in secrecy, sharing their fears and hopes. He takes her on scooter rides around Sarajevo. Pressured to bring proof of his conquest, Faruk is conflicted.
      He takes Mona to a fortress that overlooks the city. They have sex and fall asleep. Mona wakes up, cold and alone. She makes a slow descent into the city.
