Synopsis:

Bosnia, 2007. A boy named Alen lives in the Sarajevo Orphanage and believes that his parents are a French woman and an English man who met in Sarajevo as war reporters and who were forced by the war and by their professional commitments to leave him temporarily. Alen writes letters to his mother in France, he gives them to Cica, his teacher, who stores them in her desk. Alen tries to find his file and learn the name and address for his mother. He discovers that his mother’s name is Amila and that she was raped during the war, and that he is the product of the rape. He goes to the small town of Nemila where he finds Sabina, or Amila, who has a new life, a kind-hearted husband named Muamer, a daughter and a son. Alen wins their hearts, he acts as one of the family, and the children tell him that Amila is not their real mother. He says nothing about the file; he quizzes Sabina about her life without letting her know that he is her son. Due to some circumstances, Amila finds out that Alen is the child she gave birth to in the refugee camp.
