This film is a portrait of Bojan, a young man with a passion for graffiti and hip-hop. Bojan was born in Split, Croatia. He lost his father during the civil war and escaped with his mother and sister to Serbia. When he was 11 his mother died and he was put in an orphanage. At the age of 18 he became homeless and lived on the streets of Belgrade.

He was 21 when he died from an overdose, one year after this film was shot.

“A rare totally authentic, no nonsense documentary etude of the highest order about a young, self-destructive graffiti artists living in the streets of Belgrade, homeless, but never hungry; there is a heartbreaking thing or two to be learned about eating food from garbage containers and telling it with disarming honesty and yes, even charm, straight to the camera. Not to be missed!” - curator of SEE Festival LA
