14/1 | 21:30 | Autumn Waltz
During the 1990’s in ex-Yugoslavia a war rages. A husband and wife try to escape their besieged town but there’s an improvised barricade blocking the road. In an attempt to get past it, they make up a story to tell the guards, but it quickly crumbles. As they were about to get shot by the soldiers, the man turns and says the word ’Lemon’, which just may be their way to freedom.
