Kiem Holijanda

## ## ## ##

Stray dogs drift through the streets. In a desolate village in Kosovo, 13-year-old Andi sells milk he’s bottled himself. He’s skimming a bit off the top of the family earnings in order to save up for a cell phone of his own. His older brother Florist harbors an entirely different dream, one which his family has no idea about. With a sensitive touch, the director tells the story of a brotherly bond and of defiant routes driven by strong yearnings.
