Dogs of Home is a story about ripples of war through time, displayed through segments of animation and live action. It is an intimate insight into a generational experience of Bosnia, infused with resilience, love and demise of her people. The duality of mediums creates a division in time, evoking the fantastical experience of reality through a genre of a documentary.
