On the verge of adulthood, Alma is always on the cusp: she was born in Bosnia but grew up in Holland, and though she is no longer a child, she is neither fully an adult. When she learns her father, whom she barely knows, is in hospital, Alma travels to Bosnia to see him. She is snubbed by her cousin Emir, too busy with his shady dealings to be of much help, but there is also his handsome friend Denis. The rebellious trio sets out on an unpredictable journey through the colourful Bosnian countryside in search of Alma’s father. The critics have compared the Bosnian-style absurdist road movie with Jim Jarmusch’s films. It won the Heart of Sarajevo for best film and premiered at Rotterdam, winning the Special Jury Award.
