A woman struggles with motherhood, death and the aftermath of war.

Haunted by her long-suppressed past and pressured by family to seek treatment from mystical healers for her infertility, a Kosovar woman struggles to reconcile the expectations of motherhood with a legacy of wartime brutality, in this deeply personal feature debut.

Los Angeles-based Kosovar writer-filmmaker Antoneta Kastrati, a survivor of the 1999 war, has directed a series of socially relevant documentaries on post-war Kosovar society, alongside her sister Sevdije Kastrati. ZANA [+] is her feature-length debut, which had its world premiere in the Discovery section of the 44th Toronto International Film Festival.
