Storyline

A harsh dose of cinematic realism about a harsh time-the Bosnian War of the 1990s-Juanita Wilson's drama is taken from true stories revealed during the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague. Samira is a modern schoolteacher in Sarajevo who takes a job in a small country village just as the war is beginning to ramp up. When Serbian soldiers overrun the village, shoot the men and keep the women as laborers (the older ones) and sex objects (the younger ones), Samira is subjected to the basest form of treatment imaginable. Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

Painful Yet Necessary
28 March 2018 | by kennasplaceSee all my reviews

I cannot explain my discomfort in watching this film. It is most definitely not for the faint of heart. However, it delves into a topic that is so important and yet so ignored. Throughout the film there is very little dialogue, the majority of the story is told through the face of the talented and powerful protagonist. The plot of the film is bleak and painful, but provides a real sense of the hell which hundreds of Bosniak women experienced during their internment in the Bosnian War. This film does not shy away from the torture and abuse the women faced, but it shows their strength in maintaining any dignity they could through the gruesome process. I think the director handled the topic with grace and created a movie that is both haunting and substantial, but I do wish that the film would have shown the struggles of Serb and Croat women who were also assaulted in large numbers during this time.
