CHILDREN OF SARAJEVO

by Aida Begić

synopsis

Rahima (23) and Nermin (14) are orphans of the Bosnian war. They live in Sarajevo, a transitional society that has lost its moral compass, including in the way it treats children of the people who were killed fighting for the freedom of their city. After crime-prone adolescent years, Rahima has found comfort in Islam and she hopes her brother will follow in her footsteps. Their life of bare survival becomes even more difficult after Nedim gets into a fistfight at school with the son of a local strongman. This incident triggers a chain of events leading Rahima to the discovery that her young brother leads a double life…
