Though the young girl’s eyes he depicts the turning year 1989/90 and the bloody birth of a young democracy: the world between yesterday and today, the rituals of blame, revenge and grief, the strange friendship between a grandmother and her granddaughter, the fate of the survivors and the influence of the dead.
