First showing in Barcelona

A highly unconventional family pulls together in this bighearted third feature from Australian-Macedonian director Goran Stolevski. When Suada, a Roma mom to two daughters, a rebellious teen and a five-year-old, receives a cancer diagnosis, her partner Dita faces difficult choices. Her house is a haven for young men and women, ostracized in Macedonian society for being Roma and LGTBQ. Tensions around sexuality and love take a surprising turn when Dita’s gay friend, Toni, unwillingly steps into the role of the girls’ father and Dita’s supposed fiancé. Their unconventional marriage is far from made in heaven, but in this brash ode to love and resilience, Stolevski treats complicated and thorny family dynamics – set against a background of ethnic, social, gender, and sexuality exclusion – with warmth and big doses of wry humour rarely encountered on the big screen.
