by Tomislav Žaja

synopsis

The story of Manusha, a nine-year-old Roma girl. When her beloved grandmother dies, Manusha’s parents are too preoccupied with basic survival to notice that strange things are starting to happen. It soon becomes clear to Manusha, however, that her grandmother is haunting the family home.
