In this striking story, ten-year old Nori and his father, Gezim, earn their living by selling cigarettes in prewar Kosovo in the 1990s. The father is an expert at escaping the past and now wants to flee Kosovo, without Nori.
But the boy tries everything he can to prevent his dad from leaving. After an accident, little Nori wakes up in hospital and realises that his father has left. Angry yet determined, Nori sets out on a perilous journey and, indeed, finds his father in Germany.
With the persistence only a child can have, he confronts his father about leaving him behind.
