    The story begins with the arrival of the tragic heroes in Serbia. Eighteen months later, the story ends with their departure from the airport, their melancholy mentor, the filmmaker Mladen Maticevic, waving goodbye. By then, the dream of the three Ethiopian long-distance runners who hoped for a career in Europe lies in tatters. In a calm tempo, Maticevic follows the three athletes throughout this time, getting involved in the developing situation like a kind of life coach.
