This film explores familial tensions, daily life, and possibilities in a small town in Herzegovina between the fall of communism and the outbreak of war in the former Yugoslavia. Divko returns home after twenty years in exile and sets out to reclaim his family home. Family squabbles play out over news of conflict, with most characters in disbelief about the unfolding violence.
