Stacks Image 34867

The action takes place in war torn Sarajevo. Amela and her father live in an area exposed to constant enemy attacks. Father is ill, mother left the family taking along the younger child. Ten year-old Amela does all the chores. She collects firewood in dangerous fighting areas so she can cook dinner or heat water to bathe her father. School's out for the summer but Amela doesn't have time to play with her friends. She has to fetch water, do the laundry by the river... Amela finds solace in her two guinea pigs, the inseparable friends for whom she always finds some time reminding us all that her childhood can't be taken away from her.
