A fairytale-like film in which five girls take us on a journey through their parents’ experiences of the war in the former Yugoslavia, a war which the girls haven’t physically experienced themselves. The narratives are a combination of facts and imaginings, memories and impressions, transferred from the parents to their daughters. It is in the shadows where these narratives can unfold. While the girls listen to themselves, the viewer becomes part of their intimate family circle.
