Er the only extant score was firebombed in the Dresden Music Library but the fact that it had been rebuilt by a different composer into something new and worthwhile gives the cellist hope Meanwhile Kenan steels himself for his weekly walk through the dangerous streets to collect water for his family on the other side of town and Dragan a man Kenan doesn’t know tries to make his way towards the source of the free meal he knows is waiting Both men are almost paralyzed with fear uncertain when the next shot will land on the bridges or stree.
