In Detail

This is is a searing drama based on the true story of Fahrije who, like many of the other women in her patriarchal village, has lived with fading hope and burgeoning grief since her husband went missing during the war in Kosovo.

In order to provide for her struggling family, she pulls together the other widows in her community to launch a business selling ajvar and honey.

As a statement - a universal statement - on how women are so often treated as chattel, or worse, director Blerta Basholli has constructed something every bit as inspiring as it is powerful.

Rarely does a film win over its audience with such effortless execution.
