A documentary film by Marija Zidar
After his daughter was killed in a bitter family feud in the Albanian highlands, a father is pressured to break the vicious cycle of conflict
An 18-year-old girl is killed in a bitter family feud in the Albanian highlands. Her bereaved father is torn by the pressures from a local bishop and an NGO chairman from the capital, not only to forgive the imprisoned killer and his family, as a Christian, but to reconcile with them – as the age-old tribal code, Kanun, once required.
A poignant and insightful account of a patriarchal society caught between a lingering past and a precarious present.
