Some scenes from the movies contain female characters, pinpointing precise moments which Sena herself has lived - her childhood during the Nazi occupation in WWII and the conflict between Ustashe, Chetniks and Yugoslav Communists; the Kragujevac massacre; the loss of her young mother; her upbringing in a challenging rural environment; Tito’s arrival to power; the rebirth of Yugoslavia; the move to the big city; the struggles of post-May 68; the discovery of love; the loss of her husband; the siege of Sarajevo and the death of her children…
