The youngsters in love, Dren and Ana (Gani Rrahmani and Qendresa Kajtazi), with their beautiful play, reflected a pure, honest and open youth to society, and the audience worshiped them for it.
“The love of two young people, Dren and Anna, should not be prevented from Agron and should not be held hostage because of Mrs. Mira past; “Mrs. Mira is not guilty of what happened to her during the war; She is not a victim, but a heroine that continues to resist the prejudices and patriarchal mentality that holds in Kosovo,” were some of the statements that were made during open public discussion.
