After a world premiere at Berlinale, the talented Milica Tomovic, an exciting female voice from Serbia, won the prestigious Heart of Sarajevo as Best Director. In her debut she deals with her country’s breakup, and closely observes the desires and prejudices of three generations who are desperately trying to make sense of their lives. A compelling drama with lots of humour.

Belgrade, 1993. Serbia is at war, people are suffering from sanctions and inflation, but everyone is doing what they can. Marijana throws a costume party for her daughter’s 8th birthday, with family and fellow parents attending. Grabbing a rare opportunity when their kids are being kept entertained in the other room, the parents open a few bottles in the kitchen and enjoy their reunion. Marijana suddenly realises that she longs for more than a bunch of drunken guests and an inattentive husband, so she sets out to discover the thrills the night has to offer. The party slowly disperses, just like Yugoslavia, the country Marijana and her friends were all born in.
