YOU HAVE THE NIGHT
For 88 years, the shipyard in Bijela, Montenegro, employed lots of people, including Sanja, a cleaning lady. Now the shipyard has filed for bankruptcy, putting a large part of the community out of work from one day to the next. Sanja has no choice but to return to the village she came from — a place where whole generations of people have been left behind because there's no work. They tell stories of their abandonment and of their hope for a better future. Will Sanja, her boyfriend, and the others be able to change their lives?
