It’s been twelve years since inseparable childhood friends Lejla and Sara have spoken, but an unexpected phone call thrusts Sara back into a world she left behind, a language she’s buried, and painful memories that rise unbidden to the surface. Sara finds herself returning home, driven by curiosity and guilt. Embarking on a road trip, the two travel down the rabbit hole of their shared past and question how they’ve arrived at their present, disparate realities, through the mist of the Yugoslav wars. Recipient of the EU Prize for Literature in 2020.
