“A gritty yet romantic social-realist fairytale.” — Variety

In the rundown Sarajevo suburb of Alipasino Polje, Faruk is an orphan who lives with his sick grandmother and spends his days foraging for scrap metal and dabbling in petty crime.? One day he meets Mona, a timid teen from a politically powerful?and affluent family. As Mona dreams of escaping the overbearing toxicity of her home life, she seeks refuge and opens herself up to Faruk, a boy from a world entirely different than her own.?  

This well acted and beautiful shot drama is at its core a classic love story across social, class and political divides. However, it increasingly becomes a morality tale as Faruk is torn between his loyalties to the local organised crime ring and their escalating demands, and his growing love for Mona. Set among the social decay and corruption of post-war Sarajevo, director Igor Drljaca has made a coming-of-age romance that adopts the trappings of a fairy tale while functioning as a mystery thriller.  

Bosnia and Herzegovina’s submission for the Best International Feature Film Academy Award.
