Student and musician Lela (Ivana Surdic) lives in Belgrade with her mother Vida (Neda Arneric), who is divorced from Dushan (Miodrag Krivokapic). When Lela gets leukemia, there are no bone-transplant donors, and Vida turns to her father, Zdravko (Velimir Zivojinovic), although she hasn't spoken to him in 20 years. He's also scratched off the blood donor list, but he insists that he can cure Lela with herbal remedies if she's removed from the poisons of the city. After a stay in the countryside, her health does indeed return -- but her parents make the mistake of bringing her back to the polluted city. Shown at the 1997 Montreal film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide
