A brilliant portrait of three women from former Yugoslavia - one Croat, one Serb and one Bosnian-searching for 'home' in the cold, alienating light of contemporary Zurich, and coming to terms with the war that lives in each of them.  Film stars Mirjana Karanovic (“Grbavica”), the most known actress around the Balkan countries.
