Fahrije's husband has been considered missing since the end of the war – like so many other men from her village in rural Kosovo. When she decides one day to get her driver's license so she can sell her homemade sauces in town, she immediately faces opposition from her conservative, patriarchal village. Fahrije, however, is not intimidated and soon other women dare to help her in this revolutionary venture. The film, which won three awards at Sundance, tells the story of a daring woman who, against all the odds, builds a new existence for herself and other women.
