My Own Private War

Synopsis

What happens to a family long after a war is over? Can one ensure that their children don’t have to carry their burden?

In this very personal documentary Lidija Zelovic makes an inner journey through her memories, places and people she loves. Meanwhile she tries to leave her past behind her.

During the making of this film Zelovic finds that the real war is raging within people. Even inside herself.
