A clock is ticking. A man is sitting in a chair. Both his arms have been amputated below the elbow and he is blind: the result of a shell burst in Bosnian Gorazde. The man was transported to Belgium badly wounded two years before and is now waiting for the reunion with his children who, now that fighting has stopped in Bosnia, can visit their father. We are witnesses to the emotional reunion.
