TIFF edition:

The first Albanian-Serbian coproduction. In hope of a better life, two young couples leave their respective countries. Melinda and Nik leave Albania for Italy, in order to be able to live out their forbidden love. Vera and Marko leave Serbia for Austria, traveling through Hungary. Marko, a talented cellist, has the opportunity to enter the renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. But upon their arrival at the border, and even though their visas are in order, their problems begin. Despite the fact that they have nothing to do with a serious incident that took place the night before in Kosovo, they are arrested. Their hope to realize all their dreams in Europe disappears. As is often the case with young people from the Balkans, they are paying for the previous generations' mistakes...
