Short Synopsis: Father and son meet after twenty years of silence, but some wounds time won’t heal if the moment is gone.
Long Synopsis: Aleksandar, a thirty-year-old construction worker, comes to visit his father, whom he has not seen for twenty years, to find out why his father Simo wants to see him right now.
The two sit down, and Simo slowly gets to know his son’s life, and admits that he called him because he wants to leave him all the land after his death.
Aleksandar gets angry that he didn’t call for twenty years, and now that he did, he did it for the sake of the land.
