For 7 years, Stefan Djordjevic saw his father only once before he passed away. Based on his memories of him, he gives us a tender goodbye story about a terminally ill father that looks for a new home for his son.

Stripped of any objects other than a mobile phone that crashes in a race to try to catch a bus, a single father and his young son are forced to hitchhike to reach Belgrade. Resilience persists, Dusan and Laza are in this for the long run. Whatever shape that long run might take. How does one prepare the recipient of all our love for our perpetual absence? A sober but affective film about absence and saying goodbye. (Ana David)
