    • “Snow does not fall to cover the hill,
      but for every beast to leave its trail.”
      Bosnia, 1997. Four women, two old ladies, four girls, an old man and a boy live in the war torn village of Slavno. Their families have been killed and their bodies never found. Living with the presence of their missing loved ones, the women have created a very special world, one in which the absent are nevertheless present. Trying to keep themselves alive by keeping all memories and their dreams, they have made a dreamland out of their village without even being aware of it. But still, they are trying to fight for existence.
      Slavno is remote from the rest of the world, but the first snow brings the threat of total isolation and risk for life in the village. As it gets closer, Alma, a stubborn young woman in her late twenties, believes they can not only survive but even prosper by selling plum jam and other fruit and vegetable products on a deserted road.
      Two businessmen unexpectedly visit Slavno demanding the residents to leave the village offering money in return. The villagers face a dilemma: should they accept the offer that could save their lives but destroy their souls?
      A sudden storm traps the businessmen in Slavno, forcing them to face a problem bigger than anything they expected - the truth!
