A SIEGE

ABOUT

 

The short movie tells a story about the sacrifices women had to make during the times of war.

1994, Sarajevo. No water, electricity or food in the town under siege.

Tea Mikic, despite the horrible war conditions, manages to keep her positivity. She lost her husband during the war and is completely self-sufficient. She is getting ready for something in the morning, so she decides to wash her hair even though all her backup supplies are gone. She starts her desperate journey to look for water, and neither her neighbors nor sniper fire can stop her.
