West Bosnia 1977.

Mixed orthodox and muslim people.

Inspired by true events.


F***ing antenna.

Little bad weather and you can't

get any signal.

What's on the news?

- The usual, meetings, talking nonsense.

It started raining.

- Good, it's been a while.

Aunt! Halima!

- Safija?

Sit down, I'll get it.

Dear God Safija, what are you doing

here? You didn't walk here didn't you?

He'll kill me aunt, he'll kill me!

- Who's going to kill you child?

Father, when he finds out!

- Slow down, take it easy.

I didn't...

I didn't get it...

- What you didn't get? - I didn't get it!

How can that be, God save you!

It's late... It's two months late.

I didn't think...

- You didn't think anything! Who did it?

Alright child, crying won't help us,

we'll figure something out.

He'll kill me!

- Take it easy. Tell me first, who did it?

He has to marry you while

he's single, do you understand woman?!

You know what's your father like, head

will roll! - He can't marry me, he can't!

Why not? Is he married?

- It's not that...

Not what? - He's not ours.

- Serb?

I love him aunt, I love him!

- My God, what should we do?

Where's the boy?

- Around here, he should be here soon.

There he is.

- Is there something to eat?

I'm starving.

- You could've come earlier.

I'm serving dinner for the fifth time.

- I was checking on pigs.

Look at this weather, a storm.

- You did right, sit down Slavo, sit.

Drink one with your old man.

- No thanks.

Just to eat something, to get warm.

- Go one, take one. - I can't.

Leave the child alone.

- He's not a child anymore, and he won't

be single anymore soon.

- What did you hear? Lucky mother...

Now tell me, I heard you have some

girl over the hill, in Cemerua.

In Cemerua?

- Zora, these are man business.

He won't bring a Turk in the house, God

forbid! - Did you hear me? Not a word.

Tell me... is there something... or not?

What if there is? - Nothing, but I should

hear it from you, not from others.

If she's good for you, she's good for me

too. I don't have a problem with that.

You're sure giving him good advices...

I can't listen to that anymore.

I told her that she shouldn't listen,

didn't I?

Tell me, is there something or not?

There is. - There is?

There is. - Alright, and?

And what? - What are your plans damn it?

- I planned to marry her.

To marry her? - Yes, to marry her.

- But you know what will village say...

I don't care about that.

Me neither, but did you saw your mother?

She acts like she got bitten by snake.

And Germany? - I won't go.

- You won't...

I arranged everything, uncle is waiting

for you, he found you a job in Munich.

I don't want to go to Germany.

I want to get married.

Think about it again, there's no hurry.

- Dad, I don't have to think about it.

Think about it. If you still want to get

married after that, let it be.

F*** the village, and f*** Germany too!

And mom?

- F*** her too... I'll talk with her.

Eat that, it will get cold.




Where's that girl?

Safija! Get over here, do you hear?!





I'm here.

What Avdo said?

- He doesn't know yet.

No one has dare to tell him

that Safija is pregnant.

He's your brother, but he's a fool.

He'll make some trouble.

Do you have the money?

- Two thousand, it's enough.

You could've bring more, he's your brother

- Yes, but he's a fool, just like Avdo.

We don't have great brothers...

Where have you been brother, I drank

half the bottle while I was waiting.

Congratulation Mustafa, here's a chicken

and some pie. - You shouldn't have. Come in.
