Valentina lives in a small hut in Macedonia with her family of twelve. She wears army pants and a tracksuit top, and her hair is dishevelled. She knows every detail of her family history: how her father won her mother’s heart with a bottle of juice and a pack of cigarettes, why her sister was held at gunpoint by her parents in-law...Observations of daily live are mixed with personal stories, dreams with actual facts. Yet it becomes clear, that all of her story telling is nothing but preparation for her big dream.
