Venas Berisha is a 5-year-old boy who lives in the mining town of Belacevac. He lives in a house with nine of his relatives, and has recently talked about getting a rifle to protect his three sisters from the stray dogs that roam the village. His father, Arsim, is a hard-working carpenter who, in addition to building kitchen cabinents for residents, is repairing his house. The house, along with around 90 percent of the village, was destroyed during the war.
