Synopsis Brothers Rahima and Nedim have lived their childhood during the Balkan war and they now try to live through the post-orphanage era in a Sarajevo that struggles to heal the wounds left by the conflict. Rahima works in a restaurant, in the kitchen, and tries to keep custody of his younger brother, a sometimes conflictive and slightly cynical teenager who doesn’t seem to do much to help her out. She tries at the same time to be respected as an adult Muslim women in an environment still shaken by the fact that Rahima has decided all of the sudden to wear a turban. Djeca, winner of the Special Award of the Jury of Un Certain Regard in Cannes and candidate for Bosnia to the Oscar to the best foreign language film, is a common story, the everyday life of people who not only lost everything at a certain point but also had to learn to survive at an age when that should not be necessary.
