Nazif and his wife Senada are Roma and live with their children in poor conditions on the outskirts of Sarajevo. While Nazif attempts to earn money by selling scrap metal gained from wrecked cars, his wife looks after the household and their two daughters. When one day she develops severe abdominal pain and finds out at the hospital that her unborn child is dead, good advice turns out to be expensive: Senada might become septic and the family cannot afford the urgently needed operation. Since she lacks insurance the hospital refuses to treat her. A fight against time, death and hopelessness ensues…

A son retour du travail, Nazif voit sa femme enceinte Senada se tordre de douleur. Le médecin leur apprend que l'enfant est mort et qu'elle doit absolument se faire opérer de toute urgence. Mais la clinique de la région refuse de pratiquer l'opération car le couple n'a ni argent, ni assurance. Quand Danis Tanoviæ a lu un reportage sur cette histoire, il a été emporté par l'indignation et a décidé d'en faire un film. Cet œuvre d’une authenticité absolue a été récompensée par l’Ours d’argent à la Berlinale 2013.
