Co-writer Ana Vujanović’s grandmother recounts her remarkable Second World War experiences as one of the first Serbian female partisans. Ana’s partner, co-writer, director and award-winning artist Marta Popivoda creates a caring, personal memorial to an incredible woman, which also connects her to their own struggle against contemporary fascism. The film’s hopeful, collectivist spirit and earthy aesthetic inhabits an ordinary people’s pursuit of social justice, set alongside the grand narratives of history.
