The performance uses puppetry, music, movement and images to tell a story about violence and how to stop it in everyday life in our schools, from the schoolyard where minor violence begins all the way to the classroom. The teacher takes a new approach to inspire her students. They take part in the story, solve their relationships and find love.  Violence is defeated.

The importance of Ivo Andrić for our literature is reflected in the fact that in his stories he was trying to discover how the historical circumstances exposed the people from our regions in challenging and often difficult situations, while  advocating pacifism, just like in the story "Aska and the Wolf”.
