Mother Europe. The old continent seen through the eyes of a girl

Born in the Balkans, but raised as a citizen of the world by her Cuban-Macedonian father and Slovenian mother, little Terra quickly learned about borders.

She goes on a journey through former Yugoslavia with her family, encountering numerous remarkable characters with interesting stories, and tells us her innocent but intelligent, already experienced view of the continent that is not at all as united as it would apparently like to be. 

She looks at Europe through the eyes of a small child from the Balkans. Though this journey, Terra may easily shatter our preconceptions about where we live.
