About

** Co-presented with Seattle Turkish Film Festival and Romanian Film Festival curated by ARCS **

Haunted by her long suppressed past and pressured by family to seek treatment from mystical healers for her infertility, a Kosovar woman struggles to reconcile the expectations of motherhood with a legacy of wartime brutality.

Kastrati’s documentarian’s eye … captures rich details in the simple lives of Lume and her community. It’s a contradictory world … in which faith in God and in the powers of hucksters and healers are complementary rather than mutually exclusive.” – Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
