A highly anticipated, affecting drama from one of Australia’s most exciting global talents.
This special Australian premiere is a luminous, emotionally engaging drama on found family and social injustice. The house of Dita (Romanian star Anamaria Marinca), in the hills of Skopje, North Macedonia, is a makeshift refuge for a motley crew of queer people. When her girlfriend falls terminally ill, the aloof Dita is forced to promise she will raise her partner’s two reluctant daughters. But to save this patchwork family, she must marry the nearest available man due to the country’s legal position on same-sex marriage and adoption. Visually gripping and powerfully acted, Macedonian-Australian Goran Stolevski has truly established himself as one of world cinema’s most exciting directorial voices.
