How Harry Became a Tree – Kako Je Hari Postao Drvo

Ireland, 1924. Harry’s favourite son, Patrick, was killed during the Civil War. His wife Annie died of a broken heart shortly after. Harry continues to live with his son, Gus, in their small house on the edge of the village of Skillet, but he gradually becomes more and more withdrawn. One grey day, he has an absurd idea: Why not find himself an enemy? After all, if love seems to have left him with nothing, perhaps hate can give him back some relish for life…
