Description:
Edit is an elderly Zagreb widow who walks her Dalmatian pedigree dog Briska in the park every day. One afternoon, Haris, a young Bosnian, also comes in the park with his mixed-breed dog Walter. Initial quarrelling about the dogs and their behaviour leads to open hostility and scuffling, but soon to discussion, which then turns into calm conversation and finally to a kind of understanding for the problems of the other. It’s obvious that the life tragedies of the two protagonists are incredibly similar and that they have more in common than they might think. A humorous and at the same time deeply human story.
