Hana is 12 years old in 1992 when she is put on one of the last UN evacuation buses fleeing the besieged city of Sarajevo.

Her 21-year-old sister, Atka, stays behind to look after their five younger siblings. As the Bosnian war escalates, Hana has to cope as a refugee in Croatia, far away from home and family, while Atka battles for survival in a city where snipers, mortar attacks and desperate food shortages are a part of everyday life.

When Atka finds work with a photojournalist from New Zealand, life takes an unexpected turn…

Page & Blackmore Readers and Writers brings authors to the Nelson Arts Festival in talks and discussions that illuminate their works and our lives.
