Summary/Review: "One morning during the Kosovo conflict of the 1990s, in the town of Gjakova, the Albanian population find their front doors marked with a white cross. During the night Serbian forces outside the town make frightening wolf howls. Serbian neighbours turn hostile. Fearful for their lives, the Albanians in one neighbourhood hide their women and children inside the basement of a house. In a few days, however, Serbian forces wearing wolf masks arrive accompanied by tanks, demolishing houses and killing people. The occupants of the basement are found and shot down in cold blood. Five-year-old Ermal Bllaca, shielded by his dead mother, remains alive. So does his father Adem. But his three sisters are also dead. Days later all traces of the killings are erased. Thirteen years later, as a young man living with his father in Mississauga, ON, Ermal still asks himself why he too was not killed. He dreams of finding the bones of his mother and sisters, and seeking justice for their deaths."--
