Hey, honey?

It's fundamentally okay.

But we're only paying half-price.

Go on, tell her.

I can't...

My boss.


Your customers left the bag in the car.

Don't want anyone saying we stole it.

What're you doing tonight?

No idea.

Shall we go for a drink?


Or to the movies?

How about dancing?


Tomorrow I want 150% or your only

fiirst-league games will be on TV.

And tonight no partying, no alcohol,

no cigarettes.

And early to bed.

Is it a deal?


No ice.

One more of the same.

Hey, something here about ex-Yugoslavia.

Only about the war, of course.

War, war, what else?

It ended 100 years ago.


I bet some buddies

us two would dance.

Let's dance and split 50.50.

How much did you bet?

-Fifty kmarks.

What, only 50?

Recently someone made

quite a different offer.

But she still wouldn't dance.


Only 50 kmarks. He's crazy.

That's in Brcko.

a LASER-BUS and little kids.

Kids, kids.

Who says they're from Brcko?

But here,

the one with the red cap,

he's Minka's little son.

What's his name? You know him.

-No, I don't.

But it's a clue, a neighbor of ours.


But the kid's on the missing list too,

the one with the cap.

Back then lots of little boys

wore red caps like that.

Almost all of them.


Hey, Leila, more alcohol,

we're dying of thirst.

Stop it. That's enough.

The last "trace" put you in the mental home

for three months, remember?

I have to fiind her.


Should I have the police look for her?

Doesn't she have a watch?

Did she say anything to you?


When I woke up, her bed was empty.

Her stuff's here. And she's gone.

I knew she would flip out eventually,

but why today?

What are you waiting for?

You want me to play for Senada?

-You want me to?

Come on, you're playing.

Is this easy to wash?

No idea.

My sister bought

a similar crocheted blanket.

Is this quality better?

Dear woman, I just sell them,

I don't crochet them.

Minka's son was

on the list of missing kids.

I bet our Aida was on the bus too.


Did you see the red caps?

They were handed out in 1994.

The picture can't be older than that.

Look, at the edge.

arms and legs?

It could be a 2-year-old.

And the magazine's date,

September 25th,

exactly her 1 2th birthday.

That can't be a coincidence.

Our Aida is sending me a sign,

she needs me.

You're looking good.

They took everything:

windows, doors,

even electrical sockets.

They would have stolen the walls,

if they could have...

I see nothing's changed here.

I work so much I can hardly fiind time.


It's only been seven years...

since you got the UN donation

to renovate the house.

The only thing I found on the attic.

You washed it?

Are any of her things left?

A picture maybe?

You don't have to be a genius

to sew a red cross on a white sheet.

When there's gunfiire,

people will do anything not to be shot at.

Somebody prints the photo,

gets money for it...

and then I have to explain

that the kids aren't from Brcko.

Excuse me, could I ask you something?

-One moment.

But the little boy's from Brcko

and missing...

Listen, girl, calm down.

You'd better go back to Sarajevo.

I'm begging you. Here...


People may have tried...

to bring her out on their own...

during the siege.

But I wasn't here then.

So who brought the children out?

-How should I know?

I was in Zenica.

But I know of a guy...

who drove a bus like that: Redzic.

Where can I fiind this man?

Salko, what about the coat?

I don't know.

Girl, who do you think you are?

If I gave out information to everyone...
