Come on! - Silence.

When will she start? - Soon, soon.


Avdo didn't have a moustache!


How come you did not

recognize Omer right away?

Do it again! Do it again!

Please, do it again!

Let me be. I can't anymore.

Do it like the last time.

Alma, you do it.

Let me do that!

- It's ok.

You're pulling my hair!

What are they doing now?

I don't know.


And Alma!

Will someone replace me? -I will.

Who is Faruk?

Let me see if you'll guess this.

Safija? - No! -Then who?


Why are you leaving so early?

- Off I go.

Do something else.

This is boring!





Safija, the morning prayer!

Good morning!

You were in the

middle of the prayer...

I've been feeling pressure

in my head all morning long.

Measure it again!

It's stuffy in here...


Close the door.


Put that bowl in it's place.

I cannot spend the whole

day waiting for it to fall...


Just a little bit here...

That's it...

As-Salamu 'Alaykum

- Alaykum As-Salam.

Here they are, still hot.

- Masha'Allah! Thank you...


- Yes. It was never longer.

He was shaking for the

entire night, dreaming.

He got really scared.

If he could just tell us...

You will tell us one day, won't you?

He will. With God's help...

Need some help?

Why are you so nervous?

Do you have a cigarette?

One basin - one cigarette.

Too expensive.

You can't have this.

A gift from Magnus?

- Why do you care?

Want some make up instead?

OK. I'll take that

red eye shadow.

I'll bring it over in the afternoon.

She is spraying it all over me...

Don't quarrel.

Open the plums nicely.

Alma, the last time I read from

my cup I saw a huge scarecrow.

This big!

Would you believe that I burnt

my skirt on the same day.

The one for the beach!

It was brand new!

This is parching me!

Nadija, it's burning!

You brat!

What's up with Jasmina?

- Go help your mum!

Good morning, dear...

I dreamt that Daddy returned,

but he did not recognize me...

Watch your fingers!

Daddy will come back, won't he?


Imagine we are at the seaside now!

It's so scary here. A Chetnik

could come out ofnowhere.

We lived so well once...

Omer goes off to work,

I make some coffee,

have a cigarette, turn on the TV...

"Survival" was on the TV.


You know, those serials.

I loved when they were

showing those giraffes.

God, how beautiful they are...

Omer was a handsome guy, wasn't he?

- He was.

You won't believe what

Lejla told me yesterday.

She said that I wouldn't

want her fatherto come home!

Can you imagine that?

Why would she think that?

Yes, he was her father,

but he was also my husband.

Who wouldn't like to

have her husband home?

Why don't you tell her the truth?

- What could I say?

What if he really survived?

Let's go!

How many plums will they clean today?

If we only managed

to sell two shipments...

We could buy a Yugo from

the Serbs for 400 marks!

Drive like ladies...

Merchandise on the roof,

two of us in the car.

We could make a real business.


I would be happy if we could

make enough for cigarettes.

Move back a bit

or no one will stop.

Not that far, people

will think that I am a hooker!

I have to go to the toilet.

- You went a minute ago.

What can I do...

Come with me.

Do you have eyes at all?

Are you ok? -Are you drunk?

I have never seen anybody here.

You can only see bears

walking around here.

Yeah, really, bears...

- I'll pay for the damage...

You can't afford it!

Of course, he can!

What's your name?

Hamza... Here is my ID.
