During the siege of Sarajevo in 1994 a grenade fired from a nearby hill kills the parents of a ten year old boy. The boy loses his ability to speak. A neighbor lady adopts him and takes care of him. The boy is thrown out of his destroyed apartment, and he begins to prowl around the city with a schoolmate. Too early and too soon, he goes through the process of growing up. He learns the meaning of words such as force, death, sex. He learns how to achieve. He learns about the values. He learns what matters the most. The neighbor lady unsuccessfully tries to protect him, and the boy rushes to his own destruction. Death and suffering have become his everyday company.
