Mother Europe takes a look at Europe through the eyes of a six year old child, Terra. Born in the Balkans but raised as a citizen of the world by her Cuban-Macedonian father and Slovenian mother, little Terra quickly learns about borders. She goes on a journey through former Yugoslavia with her family, encountering numerous remarkable characters with interesting stories. The film is shot from her perspective and through her innocent, intelligent, and already well travelled perspective gives a view of the continent that only a child could create. Looking at Europe through the eyes of a small child from the Balkans has the potential to shatter your preconceptions about where you live and your sense of home.
