Soldiers burst into a small home in a village. A child hides under a bed and watches while they destroy his home and take away his mother and baby sister. He wanders the empty streets alone. A wounded soldier mistakes him for the enemy and shoots. He escapes into an abandoned church. When he emerges at the other side the sound of fighter planes in the sky terrifies him. The sound is replaced by silence and peace. Colorful balloons drift down from the sky. One of them is magic. He grasps the string and is transformed. Filled with hope and joy, the boy runs toward the wounded soldier and gives him the string of the balloon which transforms the soldier as well. Suddenly the fighting resumes and the balloon bursts, ending the child’s dream abruptly.
