    • Synopsis
    • The horrors and suffering of the Second World War are portrayed in bittersweet terms through the eyes of 11-year-old Zoran whose father has joined the partisans to fight the German occupiers and whose mother becomes involved with a German officer. In the year of 1941 the city of Skopje is occupied by Germans and their Bulgarian allies. While the occupiers take over the local Jews’ homes and settle themselves down comfortably, the townsmen’s lives turn into an everyday struggle. 11-year-old Zoran’s (David Todosovski) father has joined the Yugoslavian Partisan Army while his mother, Lica (Lucija Serbedzija), tries to maintain what little structure of life they have left back at home.
