The Kosovan entry for the International Film Oscar scooped the main awards at Sundance Festival.
Like many women in Kosovo, Fahrije is hoping for news about her husband, who is still missing seven years after the war. Widows are not expected to work, but she has to provide for her family and joins forces with other widows to start a business producing ajvar. This is even though the community already condemns her for daring to drive.
As storytelling, this is as good as it gets.
