Dida has learning difficulties and still depends on her mother. When the latter finds herself no longer able to take care of her, it falls to Dida’s son, Nikola, to take over. How can he help his mother live her life without losing his independence? With an ample dose of humour, this family film recounts the relationship between a son and his mother as they rediscover one another in adulthood. 

Dida has learning difficulties and still depends on her mother. When the latter is no longer able to look after her, it falls to Dida’s son, Nikola, to take over. How can he help his mother live her life without losing his independence? And how can he do so while living in different cities, even different countries? Nikola and his wife Corina reorganise their life to deal with these new responsibilities. While Dida learns about her son’s day-to-day life in Zurich, Nikola rediscovers the small worker’s apartment in Belgrade that he had left to move in with Corina in Switzerland. He expresses his doubts and feelings frankly, in a voiceover reminiscent of a personal journal. The di- rectors Nikola Ilić and Corina Schwingruber Ilić confide their story through a moving family film that paints an intimate portrait of Dida and her world of wonder. With an ample dose of humour, this feature-length film recounts the milestones in the life of a son and a mother who rediscover each other in adulthood, between two cities and two cultures.
