How do you remember? How do you live the rest of your life? One morning in the 1990s in Kosovo, the Albanian population of Gjakova find their front doors marked with a white cross. Fearful for their lives, the Albanians in one neighbourhood hide their women and children inside a basement. In a few days, however, Serbian forces wearing wolf masks arrive accompanied by tanks, demolishing houses and killing people. The occupants of the basement are found and shot down in cold blood. Ten-year-old Ermal, shielded by his dead mother, remains alive. So does his father Adem. But his three sisters are also dead. Days later all traces of the killings are erased. Eight years later, as a young man living with his father in Mississauga, Ontario, Ermal is still haunted by those events. And he dreams of revenge.
