In order to recover the body of her son lost during the war in Bosnia, a grieving, but strong-willed Muslim woman, Halima, must track down her estranged niece, who we find carries a mysterious connection to him.
Post traumatic life of the Bosnian Muslim widows and daughters after their husbands and fathers were murdered by Bosnian Serb Army. Plot is set in post war eastern Bosnian village near town of Zvornik.
One of the best (Bosnian) movies I've seen in last years. Bosnia and Herzegovina is still trying to recover from the terrible war (and present silent war) and people are left by their representatives to try to survive those hard conditions (economic and political) in which the country is.
In short, the story is about a taxi driver trying to make the living and to provide for his family the best he can in the situation given. And the situation is a catalyst or a cause for his actions. He tries to be a nice / good person but as the movie shows, in such surroundings, it's not an easy thing.
Definitely worth watching. The cast is great, characters are played in such a way that the viewer really is able to experience the story.
