    • Synopsis
    • Nations, men and women are fighting, at home and abroad. There comes a day when the fighting stops. The war seems to be over, but it's not. Survivors carry shards of past conflicts inside them. Death and loss continue to warp their lives. Anger and pain fester generation after generation.

      Sedina, Jasmina, and Senada are three young village women. War erupts in Bosnia; their worlds fall apart. Their husbands disappear, as do dozens of men from their families. Their homes, their villages, and their country are swept away.

      They decide one autumn to move to Vive Zene, a residential therapy program in Tuzla, Bosnia. Over the course of a year, they begin to weep, dance, sing, and laugh. They renew bonds with their children and rebuild their lives.

      War-Wearied echoes countless other tragedies, past and present. Across moments of powerful clarity and stark loss, Sedina, Jasmina, and Senada work their way through four seasons of mourning, love, and life.
