Kosovo's official entry to 2022's Oscars is amazing, authentic, emotional and powerful. Its true story is beautiful, interesting and well written. It beautifully tackles important topics like how hard it is to be a strong independent woman in a sexist patriarchal society, and to wait for those who are lost in the war. All portrayed in a beautifully simple, real and moving way. Cinematography is stunning. Lead performance is Oscar-worthy. It's one of the year's best international films.

Like many women in Kosovo, Fahrije is hoping for news about her husband, who is still missing seven years after the war. Widows are not expected to work, but she has to provide for her family and joins forces with other widows to start a business producing ajvar. This is even though the community already condemns her for daring to drive. The film was inspired by the true story of Fahrije Hoti.
