Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

In a small Kosovar village, Lume (Adriana Matoshi), lives with her husband Ilir (Astrit Kabashi) and her mother-in-law Remzije (Fatmire Sahiti). Lume is under constant pressure to get pregnant, especially from Remzije, who threatens to “replace” her with a younger and more eager prospective wife who will bring her grandchildren. Desperate, Lume decides to stray away from modern medicine and seeks the help of witch doctors and mystic healers who promise to treat her infertility. During the process, her well-hidden post-war traumas will soon return to the surface, and the family will start to question her mental and psychological state.
