Storyline

Rudina, a married middle-age mother sets off on a long car journey with her five year old son and her pregnant and single sister, Elma, to the far off Albanian village where they were raised. Rudina's plan is to meet their strict and traditional father then head back to her own home before dark. As Rudina's car slowly makes its way across southern Albania, Elma comes up with a plan to enlist an ex-classmate to play the part of her husband. Written by Florenc Papas

Captivating film
14 June 2020 | by kellyyhamiltonnSee all my reviews

Spellbound, very well made. The plot seems very simple but they managed to put so much effort into it. The two leading actresses do a great job, their acting is phenomenal. It's a standout drama, I highly suggest it.
