Sevdah is a feeling of life coloured by melancholia, longing and beautiful sorrow. In Bosnia it is expressed with the traditional song – sevdalinka.

Songwriter, performer and researcher Davor and director Marina were brought together by the death of their mutual friend Farah, a sevdah aficionada. Trying to face their own loss and sorrow, they created a film about sevdah and made it an emotional, lyrical and visual journey across the spirit of Bosnia, their feelings and memories.
