With Mom


In Sarajevo, more than a decade after the war, while her socialist family is falling apart, Berina, a young artist, is trying to live out her just discovered sexuality and, at the same time, accept her mother’s terminal illness. Jasna, a dominating woman, mother, doctor and pillar of the family, is entering the terminal phase of breast cancer, which she has been fighting against for nine years. Her husband Mladen doesn’t know how to handle the fact that he is losing Jasna. Their younger daughter Luna is extremely introverted and childish. However, Berina is looking for hope; she is digging through her memories, old photos of a happy middle class family from the period when everything was sunny and white in their seaside house. Unfortunately, memories do not offer a solution. Living in her own world, surrounded by a family she cannot communicate with, Berina is trying to save her mother in her own ways: through magic, rituals, fate...
