In Our Paradise. A family in two countries
In Bosnia-Herzegovina, Indira dreams of elsewhere. In France, Mehdina strives to find her place. Whilst the adults seem to be fighting windmills, the kids grow up in a world of their own with ten-year-old Hasan blissfully wandering on the path of Armstrong and traveling into space.
As we follow Indira and Mehdina during one winter season, images of the past confront those of the present and the tale of two sisters slowly unfolds.
Pieces of the puzzle come together to unveil an investigation of the human condition and reveal a universal story about family ties, about growing up and finding your place in the world.
