Arsen Anton Ostojić | Bosnia and Herzegovina| TBC | 2012 | Drama | 93mins

In 1977, fifteen years before the Bosnian War ravaged their lives, Halima's niece Safija became pregnant by Slavomir, a Serb man. Beaten and ostracised by her Bosniak family, Safija gave the infant boy to the childless Halima to raise, telling Slavomir it was stillborn. Twenty-three years later, the devastating war has ended. Bodies are being identified through DNA samples and returned to families for burial. Halima's husband is found, but Mirza's bones cannot be returned to her without a blood sample. And that would have to come from Safija, who ran away years ago and married Slavomir.
