Synopsis

Jasmin, once a successful actor in former Yugoslavia, now lives in Toronto with his second wife and young son. While juggling a construction job and a busy audition schedule, he dreams of re-launching an old televised stage show that made him famous in his homeland. When he is cast in a role that triggers recollections of the civil war, he is forced to reconcile his current reality with memories of his past success.

"Director Igor Drljaca's portrait of Bosnian immigrant Jasmin Geljo's struggling acting career is sad, funny and deeply authentic...a poignant character study about the immigrant experience."
