Albania 1958. A boy and girl grow up together in the same village. They are the best of friends. Luana is the daughter of a well-respected man, Agim the son of traitors who were banned from the city by the communists. Despite these adverse circumstances, the two maintain their friendship over 10 years…


« The film shows possibilities for a new era without promising a universal solution and without telling the audience what’s right and what’s wrong. This film wants to inspire (the audience) to talk and to empathize. It touches and moves, shakes and shocks and is equally a plea for reconciliation, love. » (Anita Elsani, producteur du film)


« As the fate of her family weighs on Luana's shoulders, the film's emotional impact depends on the intense onscreen presence of actress Rina Krasniqi (playing the grown up Luana). Her performance is fierce and strong and hints at the emotional fragility of her character. She is like a flower blooming on a rock – her only mission is to survive in this hostile environment. » (Cineuropa)
