This is a story about Trifun Matic from the village of Binovce in South Serbia who has been trying for years to dig up an unexploded bomb out of his yard, the one NATO has entrusted him with. While cubic meters of earth are getting bigger and discontent and fear of neighbors culminate, old Trifun carries on with his battle. The loss of life has stopped worrying him a long time ago because, he says, he has nothing to lose any more.
