Abstract:

In 1991, Ana Juri is a ten-year-old, living with her family in Croatia's capital. But that year, civil war breaks out across Yugoslavia, splintering her idyllic childhood. When the war arrives at her doorstep, Ana must find her way in a dangerous world. Ten years later, Ana is a college student living in Manhattan. Though she has tried to move on from her past, she can't escape her memories of war secrets she keeps even from those closest to her. Haunted by the events that forever changed her family, Ana returns to Croatia after a decade away, hoping to make peace with the place she once called home. As she faces her ghosts, she must come to terms with her country's difficult history and the events that had interrupted her childhood years.
