Snijeg

Snow

 
Bosnia, 1997. Four women, two old ladies, four girls, an old man and a boy live in the war-torn village of Slavno. Their families were killed and the bodies have never been found. Living with the presence of their missing loved ones, the women have created a very special world, one in which the absent are nevertheless present. Trying to keep themselves alive by keeping all memories and their dreams, they have made a land of dreams out of their village without even being aware of it. Yet they are still trying to fight for existence.
