Description

How to Watch

This poignant drama based on real events takes place in a small town in Serbia, where Nikola, a day laborer and loving father of two, must give up his children to social services after poverty and hunger drive his wife to commit a desperate act.

Until he can provide adequate conditions for their upbringing, the children will remain in foster care. Despite Nikola’s best efforts and several appeals, the head of the social services center refuses to return his children. But when Nikola discovers the local administration may be corrupt, he decides to travel across Serbia on foot and take his case directly to the national ministry in Belgrade. Against all odds and driven by love and despair, this father refuses to give up on justice and his right to raise his children. Winner, Audience Award, Ecumenical prize, Berlin Film Festival.
