Plot
How do you get to terms with your war history? And how can you ensure that your children don’t have to carry this burden? In this very personal documentary Lidija Zelovic tries to answer this question. Zelovic grew up in Bosniain the city of Sarajevo, then still Yugoslavia, where the civil war of 1992 divided the population. In 1993, she fled to the Netherlands. As a war correspondent for the BBC and later as a filmmaker, she kept trying to get closer to the truth about war. What happens to a family long after the war is over? During the making of this film Zelovic finds that the real war is raging within people. Even inside herself. To try and leave the past behind and no longer feel like a refugee, Zelovic tries to identify the source of hostility. She gets in touch with a cousin who was a sniper during the war, speaks with a journalist friend who was close to Mladic and goes on a holiday with her son back to the family roots.
