In present day Macedonia, a very successful politician Lem Nikodinoski is rushed to the emergency room. During his near death experience he goes back to his childhood at age of twelve. World War II has just ended. Young Lem, as so many war orphans, wanders aimlessly through the countryside only to be caught by communist soldiers. He is taken to the children’s orphanage, in fact an “ideological” labor camp where kids are brought to be ideologically “reprogrammed.” This is where his true hardship begin. One day a mysterious boy is brought to the orphanage and Lem’s life changes forever.
