A great new voice from Kosovo, young female director More Raca, explores the current situation many women in patriarchal areas face far from the public eye in her compelling film. In this popular and multi-awarded festival favourite, courageous main character Zana finds herself at a crossroad having to make a quick decision that might change her life forever. Dutch Premiere


Zana is growing up in Kosovo inlands silently observing the consequences of domestic violence in her family. She witnesses her brother’s lack of empathy for the suffering of their mother and sits quiet when he forces their mother not to report anything to police.
When the awkward silence of a family ride back from the hospital is interrupted, Zana discovers that she also might not have control over her future anymore. When an opportunity presents itself, she decides to take a risk. The film subtly emphasizes that many Balkan woman are faced with a perpetual cycle of violence and repression.
