Write a review of your life — or the life of someone close to you — as if it were a movie or a book.

A young woman gets married with an independent journalist in Zagreb in the middle of the WWII. For months before the end of the war she gives birth to a baby girl. When the war is about to finish the communists are approaching her city. Her husband, who has been persecuted by the fascists and by the communists because of his work as a journalist, find out that he is in the list of people to be executed by the militias of the communists. She advices him to go out of the country for a while until the situation calms down. But then the borders get closed and they get separated. He begins a pilgrimage from a refugee camp to another, and she tries to survive alone with her daughter in the new Yugoslavia, with the secret police after her trying to figure out where is her husband.

Four Stars.

      It’s my mom’s life. she endured forced labour. My dad began to do everything in his power to rescue her and the child but the months became years and there were no results. They lived a true love story in the distance. My mom taught her daughter to love her absent father. After twelve years of trying hard in many ways to meet, they made it. My mom got a visa to get out of the country for 15 days and they were reunited in Munich. They were so in love they restarted a family life had four more children and lived happily together until my father died a few years ago.
