Dragoslava has four TV sets, three grandchildren, two best friends, and a husband with whom she fights over a remote control. She has lived in five countries without ever moving from her flat in a small town situated right on a border. Media and politics creep into the family intimacy but she reflects on it with humour and determination. For the children, she invents real life stories instead of fairy tales and keeps her desire to see a future that is hopeful rather than oppressive. Dragoslava imbues every single gesture as an act of responsibility which has the potential to change the world.
