After she presented her film One Day in Sarajevo at the 2016 ZagrebDox, Jasmila Žbanić returns with a new, seemingly autobiographic film. Jasmila met her husband Damir Ibrahimović in a shelter, during the siege of Sarajevo in the 1990s. Today they are both successful filmmakers, but Damir, who defended Sarajevo during the war, faces a particular obstacle: his fear of flying. For that reason, he never travels to festivals and film sets by air. To solve his problem, Damir takes a seminar and over the course of the sessions realizes that all of his fears are consequences of a bigger picture, the four-year siege of Sarajevo. Will Damir fly?
