THE WOMAN WITH A BROKEN NOSE

by Srdjan Koljevic

synopsis

The desperate act of a woman with a broken nose, who suddenly jumps out of a taxi and throws herself off Branko’s Bridge in Belgrade, connects the lives of three people who witness the event: the surly taxi-driver Gavrilo who tries to avoid any kind of emotional commitment, the depressed school teacher Anica, stubbornly rejecting the attentions of one of her students, and the wacky pharmacist Biljana, who’s just realised that the man she’s about to marry isn’t The One. Each of them bears a wound from the past, a trauma they haven’t yet found the courage to face. And it’s here on the bridge, linking the old city with New Belgrade, that their road to recovery begins.
