Plot
Adis and Kerim, two boys aged 7 and 9, find refuge in the home of a poet whose wife and daughter have left Sarajevo. During the civil war, Adis and Kerim lost their family, with the exception of an aunt who fled to Germany. 
As time passes, a closeness develops between the poet and the children and they come to love each other. This warmth helps them to overcome the difficulties of survival in the destroyed city. They share their meager food rations and adopt an injured dog who becomes inseparable from the children. 
When the poet locates the aunt and tries to prepare Adis and Kerim for the journey, they refuse to leave him. 
After the shells destroy his house, Hamza is convinced of the need to persuade the boys to emigrate. He goes along with them to the separation zone and stays alone in the fear of knowing if his 'new family' has arrived safely...
