    Filmmaker Biserka Šuran, invites her father to accompany her on a symbolic road-trip to their country of birth, former Yugoslavia. Inside an abandoned factory they travel back to different memories, each reflected in minimalist decor sets.

    While travelling, father and daughter reminisce, their conversations include nationality, identity, love, dreams and regrets.

    As memories resurface, love letters, archive material and insights from family members give the audience an up-close and personal account on the trials and tribulations a family experiences when forced to leave their homeland and the traumatic impact it can have on family members.
