Synopsis:

Safa, a fragile heart-patient, and her baby granddaughter Jasmina arrive on a humanitarian convoy from the besieged Sarajevo to their coastal apartment. Their alcoholic neighbour Stipe causes them problems on daily basis. He finds the presence of the new occupants and the baby’s cries upsetting. He curses and shouts, demands money and booze. Safa has no power to confront him. Occasionally, she makes futile attempts to call Sarajevo, but the phone lines are down. She is worried as her health deteriorates. During a strong asthma attack, in total despair, she knocks on Stipe’s door. Half drunk and half asleep, he opens the door but fails to understand the situation. Safa gives him a picture of Jasmina’s parents and a telephone number, she tells him that Jasmina is alone in the flat and faints. Confused, Stipe pulls her back into her flat; he picks up a bottle and returns home. He continues to drink but Jasmina just won’t stop crying. Stipe becomes nervous. It is obvious that he can’t just sit and listen to the child’s cries.
