    'A terrified 12-year-old boy finds himself separated from his family in the unfamiliar streets of a war torn city. Dodging sniper fire and mortar shells he takes refuge in a bombed-out house and in the total blackness his bravado crumbles into tears.

    'Into his life steps Anna - older, street smart and scornful of his crying. As a way of shutting the boy up, she starts to tell him a story that she vaguely remembers from her own childhood. And so begins a journey into the shifting, shimmering world of ogres, princes, singing bones, foolish lads and wolf-mothers.'
