Where are you going, Aida?

Bosnia, July 1995. Aida works as a translator for the United Nations in the small town of Srebrenica. After the Serbian army takes over the city, her husband and two sons find themselves among the thousands of people hoping to find refuge and help in the UN camp. By communicating directly with the negotiators, Aida has access to extremely secret and important information. What is on the horizon for her family and the rest of the town - salvation or death? What step should Aida take? This is a film about a woman who finds herself in a men's war game.

"Extremely exciting and tense film. The unforgettable protagonist conveys the paralyzing horror of war and the antidote of family love that awakens an unseen bravery. The director, who survived the Balkan war, constantly returns to this theme in her work and reminds: "Just because some things seem unimaginable, doesn't mean they can't happen." (Aistė Račaitytė)
