At a time when religious conflicts are taking place on a global level, this documentary explores the microcosm of a Bosnian family Milišić. People who carry the family name Milišić: Orthodox, Catholics and Muslims, are trying to uncover the family legend of a common ancestor named Miliša. Who are we? Where do we come from? The portrait of the family Milišić is the portrait of today’s Bosnia and Herzegovina and its inhabitants who are living on the crossroads between big cultures and religions, and who are trying to define their identity.
