Director: Daria Bukvić
When it comes to family, love and jobs, 30-year-old Leyla is just a 'meskina', a pitiful person. Hilarious movie about breaking idealised pictures and finding your own way.
Thirty-year-old Leyla does not have a husband, a child or a career. In other people’s eyes, this makes her a 'meskina': a pitiful person. With all these clamouring voices around her, Leyla tries to find out who she is, what she wants and what genuinely makes her happy. During this search, she gets in a serious jam and finds herself in hilarious and recognisable situations. Modern fairy-tale about identity and breaking with expectations and role patterns.
