Midwinter Night’s Dream – San Zimske Noci

Serbia, winter 2004. Lazar returns home after ten long years in prison. He discovers that the apartment where he used to live is now occupied by a woman, Jasna, the single mother of a 12-year-old autistic girl named Jovana. They are Bosnian refugees who have been squatting and have nowhere else to go. Lazar empathizes with Jasna and allows her and her daughter to stay. Little by little, these social castaways form a tight kinship as they grow closer together.
