STITCHES

Miroslav Terzić | Serbia, Slovenia, Croacia, Bosnia-Herzegovina | 2019 | 97 min.
O.V. Serbian subtitled in Spanish and English

In Spain we know a lot about children stolen from maternity hospitals, something that was also common in Serbia at the time, theme in which this multi-award winning film focuses, specifically on a true story. Although Anne was told 18 years ago that her son was a stillborn, something inside her tells her that she has been deceived. Facing the wall of unanswered questions from her doctor and the hospital, she embarks on a silent and tenacious quest in a film that blends deep humanity with an elegant thriller-style portrayal.
