Father on a business trip

War aftermath

Emir Kusturica

Short description:
The story of a boy through whose conscience and feelings stormy fifties are refracted. The time in which he lives is not inclined to him and his father, who works in the Ministry of Work. Intrigues get his father to prison. He is one of the arrested ones, whose guilt was never proven. He is a victim of time in which Yugoslavia found itself, resisting the influence of Stalinism. The boy becomes a witness of many conflicting situations. He will never find out his uncle's role in father's arrest. He will also never know that a woman who gave him his precious football was the main cause for their family misfortune.
