Stitches / Savovi
Dir : Miroslav Terzić / 97 mins / Serbia / Serbian / 2019
Based on true events, STITCHES takes place in contemporary Belgrade, 18 years after a young seamstress was coldly informed of her newborn’s sudden death. She still believes the infant was stolen from her. Dismissed by others as paranoid and with a mother’s determination she summons the strength for one last battle against the police, the hospital bureaucracy and even her own family to uncover the truth.
