Matija and Bojan grew up together. Their friendship ended abruptly when Bojan and his family abandoned their apartment, overnight, and left without saying goodbye. This happened in the early 1990s; they had been branded as ‘undesirable’ because they were of wrong nationality. Too young to understand the war or the reasons why he lost his friend, Matija decided to look for Bojan 15 years later.
