Not so Friendly Neighborhood Affair


Sarajevo, May 2021. The Old Town is trying to recover after a long and difficult pandemic year. The pandemic is not over yet, but summer is coming; there is hope that things can improve, even if only for a short time. When a woman from Zagreb enters Enis's shop one morning and says that she has come to eat “the best kebabs in Sarajevo”, he sends her over to Izo's shop, so that Izo can also afford the traditional pleasure of the first morning coffee after the first customer service. This totally harmless, friendly gesture will cause the complete disintegration of the neighbours' business and private life, engulfing not only Izo and Enis but the whole city. Where can one eat the best kebabs in Sarajevo?
