Qendresa is thirteen years old and back in Pristina, Kosovo. In 1999 she and her family escaped the war in the Balkans, heading for Sweden where they lived for over four years before being deported. Widmark and Johansson follow Qendresa and her family during their first year back in Kosovo as they struggle to re-adjust to life in a country they no longer know. Both Qendresa and her siblings have forgotten most of the Albanian language, their parents are unemployed the whole family lives together in one room. For Qendresa and her siblings, Pristinam is as foreign as to any Swede.
