Synopsis

Fahrije’s husband has been missing since the war in Kosovo, and along with their grief, her family is struggling financially. In order to provide for them she launches a small agricultural business, but in the traditional patriarchal village where she lives, her ambition and efforts to empower herself and other women are not seen as positive things. She struggles not only to keep her family afloat but also against a hostile community who is rooting for her to fail.

Reviews

"An engrossing, utterly classic tale of overcoming adversity."

- The Hollywood Reporter


"Basholli's film is a spare and unsparing portrait of a survivor who refuses to bend to ancient traditions. As storytelling, this is as good as it gets."

- The Mercury News


"It’s based on a true story of feminist defiance and healing that counts as one of the more affecting tales of recovery to come from the conflict, which decimated villages and, from its massacres, left many families of the missing in a limbo of grief that still exists."

- Los Angeles Times
