'Mother' is a film about loneliness, and about an urge of a mother from Srebrenica, to bring her family together once again. She cuts out her sons and her husband from the old photos, and creates a brand new photo, one that was never taken. Beautiful family photo, that brings them all together once again among the roses in an imaginary heaven.
