Directed by France Štiglic
Two children lose their families in an air raid and take to wandering the countryside, dodging Yugoslav partisans and invading Fascist forces, seeking a storied “Valley of Peace.” Taken under the wing of a stranded U.S. paratrooper, their faith in their deliverance is alternately vindicated and sorely tested in this strangely lyrical film that reflects Slovenia’s dogged pursuit of its own destiny in the tumultuous 20th century.
