Children of Sarajevo

DJECA

a film by :Aida Begic

Rahima (23) and Nedim (14) are orphans of the Bosnian war. They live in Sarajevo, a transitional society that has lost its moral compass, including in the way it treats children of the people who were killed fighting for the freedom of their city. After crime-prone adolescent years, Rahima has found comfort in Islam and she hopes her brother will follow in her footsteps. Everything becomes more difficult the day Nedim gets into a fistfight at school with the son of a local strongman. This incident triggers a chain of events leading Rahima to discover that her young brother leads a double life…

French Synopsis :

Rahima, 23 ans, et son frère Nedim, 14 ans, sont des orphelins de la guerre de Bosnie. Ils vivent à Sarajevo, dans cette société transitoire qui a perdu toute compassion pour les enfants de ceux qui sont morts pendant le siège de la ville. Après une adolescence délinquante, Rahima a trouvé un réconfort dans l’Islam, elle espère que Nedim suivra ses pas. Tout se complique le jour où à l’école, celui-ci se bat avec le fils d’un puissant ministre du pays. Cet incident déclenche une série d’événements qui conduiront Rahima à découvrir la double vie de son jeune frère...
