Born and raised in the Netherlands, Alma (Sara Luna Zoric) is on the verge of adulthood when she leaves her mother's home to visit Bosnia, in search of the father she has never met. There, Alma will team up with her apathetic and "patriotic" cousin Emir (Ernad Prnjavorac) and his charming best friend, Denis (Lazar Dragojevic). As Alma attempts to adapt abruptly to a reality she's not accustomed to, she embarks on an adventurous journey from Sarajevo to Mostar. During this road trip of self-exploration into the Bosnian heartlands, Alma will try to both understand and unearth her roots and her own identity.Written by
This films is shot beautifully, the director definitely knows how to use color and angles. I wish the story was as engaging as the visuals though. As much as I tried, and even after reading the director's comments about the film, I don't get the message behind it, and it's not appealing to me for numerous reason. The character study is interesting, but not enough. It's a good film, just not my kind of film
