In this imaginative short documentary, five Dutch girls make a journey through the memories, experiences and images of their parents during the war in former Yugoslavia.
These five girls grew up in the Netherlands, but their parents’ roots lie in former Yugoslavia. And although the younger generation have not experienced the war themselves, they know this dark period from stories, memories and images, through their parents and the internet. In this documentary, the girls travel back in time, informed by hard facts, vague recollections and detailed reports. In the process, the viewer also experiences the intimate atmospheres and histories of their families, in this imaginative journey.
