Synopsis

Three stories about the struggle of three women and the strongest universal urge in life, to have a child. Facing the power of nature, superstition and control over their bodies and the prejudice of tradition, these stories, set in Macedonia – one medieval, two contemporary – explore in an original way the themes of love, trust and motherhood, that are of all times.

Golden Lion-winner and Academy Award nominee Milcho Manchevski returns to his Macedonian roots in this tale of three mothers. He explores the essence of life, through these three characters, that are faced with moral and personal dilemmas. Although centuries separate them, the characters have similar worries, joys and dreams. And, all is masterfully connected in the symbol of the willow tree.
