Croatia. One family, three generations, one house. A terrible war, and a nation recovers. Decades later, another war and the nation splits apart. In 1945, Rose Kos moves into a new house with her baby Maša as Yugoslavia rebuilds from the ruins of war; in 1990 Maša runs the same house with her history teacher husband as hostilities between Serbia and Croatia threaten the whole nation. In 2011 the house is run by Maša’s youngest daughter Lucija, as family and nation see their future in a union with Europe.
