This debut film won the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film festival, and is now garnering awards in North America too. Zbanic examines the aftermath of the Balkan wars that broke up Yugoslavia. The moving, carefully-paced drama focuses on the secrets which a mother, Esma, keeps from her 12-year-old daughter Sara - and finally, painfully, reveals.
