This impressive debut feature from Bosnian director Zbanic is the
painful story of a mother and her daughter in Sarajevo surrounded
and wounded…

A story about contemporary Sarajevo. Esma, a single mother, wants to grant her twelve-year-old daughter’s, Sara, wish to participate in a school trip. A certificate proving her father is a war martyr would allow her a discount. But Esma repeatedly avoids Sara’s requests for the certificate. She would rather find a way to pay full price for the trip. Esma believes not telling the terrible truth about Sara’s father is a way to protect both her and her daughter.
