Description

In a remote Albanian town where the residents claim nothing ever happens, down-to-earth Juli, entrepreneurial Ben and free spirit Nora run a quirky cafe/ bar called Bota. But progress is coming in the form of a highway construction project, which also brings a secret from the village’s traumatic past. Compelling, surprising and tenderly performed, this melancholy dramedy illustrates the complicated relationship Albanians have with their dark past.


Press

"Compelling, surprising and tenderly performed, this low-key arthouse title deserves further distribution and clearly marks its co-directors as talents to watch." - Variety
