Synopsis

Kosovo nowadays. Jeton, a 10-year-old boy is sitting on the edge of a balcony on the 4th floor. Neighbours and passers-by, terrified by this situation, call the police and firefighters for help. But the situation quickly becomes unmanageable.
The film is a satiric reflection on today’s Kosovar society and its development, 14 years after the war - under the international observation. A cinematographic observation that exposes the authentic mindset of the Balkan society that quickly deviates into a ridiculous situation.
