SALIHA OSMANOVIC lost her husband and two sons in Srebrenica, and has been struggling alone for a decade to recover her life. Her efforts are focused now on a desperate effort to put a roof on her house, destroyed during the war. At the end of a frustrating year, the film records her surprising good news. ZUMRA SEKHOMEROVIC has not seen her husband since he was taken from her by Bosnian Serb soldiers in July 1995. The film records her campaigns with widows of Srebrenica and her continuing search for the remains if her husband. It also charts the repeated failures of the International community to respond to Genocide, and asks: When will we move beyond slogans to action?
