Elvis Walks Home
Director: Fatmir Koci
Narrative, Albania, 95 min.

Mickey Jones is marooned in the Balkan wars – carrying a guitar and wearing an Elvis Presley jumpsuit. His world tour kicks off by entertaining the British troops, but when the military police discover he is an Albanian they try to arrest him. So Mickey flees. He meets a group of refugee children trying to get to the United Nations camp. They hold him at gunpoint; Mickey claims he is a UN doctor and will lead them to UN. The children agree, but never really trust him. Their dangerous journey through the horrors of war tests them all. Mickey has a choice; does he follow his Elvis dreams, or does he sacrifice them to save children whose only dream is to stay alive?
