Nana, an eighty-year-old woman, is in a need of surgery. She and her husband leave their village of Hrsa and move temporarily to Sarajevo, where they live with their daughter while awaiting the procedure. Even though the couple loves being with their family, the wait for the surgery drags on and Nana becomes increasingly home sick. The couple is promised that the surgery will happen very soon and that they need to be patient. As they linger longer away from their home, they miss their way of life, the mountains, and their daily routine.
