Plot
Born in Sarajevo, with water on the brain, abandoned at birth and given just months to live, Oggi Tomic did 
not get the best start in life. However 27 years later, against the odds, and through the kindness of 
strangers, he is alive, well and happily married in the UK. After a war torn childhood, plagued by near 
starvation, shelling and continuous suffering it seems like everything is finally falling into place for Oggi 
until one day he receives a phone call from his long lost family. 
It’s the moment every orphan waits for. There’s just one thing. It turns out the family he has waited his 
entire life to hear from are in fact the same ‘Men in the Hills’ who laid seige to Sarajevo for 1300 days. 
Finding Family is a powerful and profound first person narrative that follows Oggi as he heads back to 
Bosnia for this extraordinary family reunion. This is a story of identity and belonging, on an individual and 
national level.
