"If I really am a Freedom Fighter, the freedom I have won is the worst failure of my life."Srbijanka Turajlić (Mila’s mother) 

A locked door inside a Belgrade apartment has kept one family separated from their past for over 70 years. As the filmmaker begins an intimate conversation with her mother, the political fault line running through their home reveals a house and a country haunted by history. The chronicle of a family in Serbia turns into a searing portrait of an activist in times of great turmoil, questioning the responsibility of each generation to fight for their future.

"Director Mila Turajlić examines Serbia's political history through the eyes of her activist mother in this engrossing doc."Variety

"A locked door in her mother’s apartment provides the gateway to both her remarkable family history and her country's tumultuous political inheritance [and] lets us into a world we've seldom seen."TIFF

"Accessible, informative and wryly humorous… The personal and political interweave to quietly rewarding effect."The Hollywood Reporter

"A vivid and nuanced portrait of a country too often judged from the outside."Seventh Row
