A door locked for 70 years in a house haunted by history. The story of an apartment in Belgrade turns a family chronicle into a portrait of a country in political turmoil. As the filmmaker seeks answers from her activist mother, their intimate conversation questions the responsibility of each generation to fight for their 20 international awards including the New Directors prize at the 2013 San Sebastián Film Festival and the 2014 Nordic Council Film Prize. Benedikt Erlingsson is a 2016 Gan Foundation for Cinema award winner.
