Biserka Šuran’s family fled Tito’s Yugoslavia for the Netherlands when she was only two. Her film is a ploy to question her father about the circumstances and repercussions of their emigration. While one can never recover the past of one’s parents, Šuran is interested in the possibilities of using a structured documentary setting to get at emotions that have been buried too deeply.
