After waiting out the Balkan conflict in Germany, Mirjana returns unmarried and pregnant to her war-torn village in Croatia. Plans by her shocked parents to marry her off hurriedly are derailed when the birth brings an even more unwelcome surprise -- a bundle of joy with Asian features. Mirjana’s not talking, but everyone else is, in this satire on xenophobia with obvious parallels that, director Svilicic dryly notes, are rooted in 'far smaller ethnic differences.' A critically acclaimed selection of the Berlin, Vancouver, and Warsaw international film festivals.
