Ten-year-old Nori and his father Gezim earn their living by selling cigarettes in pre-war Kosovo of the nineties. Gezim will hear nothing of Nori's mother. He is an expert at escaping the past and now he wants to flee Kosovo without Nori. But the boy tries everything in his power to prevent his dad from leaving. An accident occurs, and the shocked father takes Nori to the hospital. When Nori is released, his father is gone. Angry yet determined, Nori sets out on a perilous journey and indeed finds his father in Germany. With the persistence only a child can possess, he confronts his father with leaving him behind.
