The Sky Above Us by Marinus Groothof
Sky Above Us, The

Sky Above Us, The

Every day Ana, Sloba and Bojan put their lives at great risk, simply by going to work. Their jobs are in or next to the national television building in Belgrade which, because of the war, has become a strategic target for NATO bombings. All three force themselves to deal with the fear in order to hold on to their ordinary lives. But the concept of “ordinary” ceased to exist some time ago.
