10-year-old Jovan suffers from cerebral palsy and stays in the classroom during breaks. In his dreams he’s soaring high in the sky of the imaginary Shade City as a superhero fighting the same bullies that push him around at school.

 

Things change when he befriends a brave and persistent girl named Milica. She too has a problem: her dad’s new girlfriend has bewitched him with magic potions and strange yoga positions. They must get rid of the witch!

 

Cerebral palsy and its treatment with regular rehabilitation is depicted believably as a part of the main character's life. During the film his handicap is transformed from a barrier to a mere hindrance.

 

This is a story about friendship and conquering one’s fears. It is possible to be a superhero without a cape.

 

Serbian filmmaker Rasko Miljkovic’s first feature film The witch hunters has won numerous awards at international film festivals.
