film synopsis

In this intimate drama, a woman suspected of murder flees to an Armenian village with her young daughter in tow. Yeva has chosen to return to the place she briefly worked as a doctor during the Nagorno-Karabakh war with Azerbaijan, hoping she won’t be recognized. With mines still dotting the hillsides, the conflict remains part of the fabric of this society and people still remember “Crazy Yeva” of the frontline hospital, though they don’t immediately connect her to the stranger in their midst. As she integrates into the rhythm of village life, Yeva’s memories of the war come flooding back, and a past tied directly to her current predicament.

Narina Grigorian’s haunting lead performance sets the uneasy tone for writer/director Anahit Abad’s stunning first feature that is at once the tense story of Yeva’s struggle to break free from an untenable situation, and an unforgettable immersion into a small, forgotten corner of the world.

In competition for the FIPRESCI Prize.
